VISUAL artist Mbongeni Buthelezi's solo exhibition, titled Imizwa Yami, is on at the Oliewenhuis Art Museum in Bloemfontein.
The exhibition, which will be on until May 30, has been touring the country since last year.
It started its journey at the Pretoria Art Museum. It then moved to the US Museum in Stellenbosch, on to the Red Location in Port Elizabeth and then the KZNSA Gallery in Durban.
Buthelezi's unique approach to art has earned him critical acclaim both locally and internationally.
He has exhibited at venues such as the Museum of African Art in New York, the Goch Museum in Germany and the Prague Biennale.
Imizwa Yami is a showcase of Buthelezi's fascinating and unusual expertise as a "plastic specialist".
He has taken this art form to another level by using colourful plastics. Looking at the works from a distance one can easily be fooled into thinking it is oil on canvas.
Buthelezi is quick to point out that the type of plastics he uses are generally not used for recycling.
"This is due to the challenge of separating the different colours and the proliferation of text on some of the wrappings I use.
"I now have 18 different techniques of producing my works. Each is subtly different from the others.
"My subject matter tends to be the physical environment of township life, which is often one of survival," Buthelezi says.
His works explore the landscapes and houses of Kliptown - an area rich in history and politics.
"I look at the physical condition of township life and how this affects one's way of life. In my Children at Play Series, I show everyday township struggles and life around me, while in my Portrait Studies, I try to express the emotions of people I have met," he says.
He claims that a large part of his work is drawn from memories of his childhood. This is interspersed with everyday township life.
Buthelezi has also introduced portraits with a jazz theme. These, he is quick to point out, document well-known musical icons.
"I sometimes interpret these experiences in a non-figurative style," Buthelezi adds.
Imizwa Yami is sure to help Buthelezi develop a new artistic CV.
