Lindani Nyandeni (28) year old emerging artist, born, bred and currently residing in Umlazi, Durban showcases his art practice at KZNSA Art Gallery as part of KZNSA’s second Young Artists’ Project this year. 

His work is a visual exploration of his childhood experiences, having lost my mother at the age of six years. Lindani who received a lot of support from his grandmother and his mother’s family but in his life has always been a yearning and empty space for his mother. This exhibition showcases what he explains as what he could only wonder how life would’ve been like if I grew up around her warmth and teachings.

“My work is a visual narrative of my unlimited thoughts, feelings and the void she left in my life. Through my work I feel closer to her, I get to celebrate, appreciate and seek comfort when society becomes cold.” – Lindani Nyandeni. 

The Symbols he employs are metaphorical to the perspective and used to view life in general and they aesthetically manifest themselves in comforting his inner peace.

The exhibition runs at KZNSA until the 16th of August 2020.
