Description

Blessing Ngobeni is a South African visual artist who creates abstracted works with a range of found objects; magazine advertisements; newspaper articles; and paint on canvas.

Motivated by social injustices experienced by the majority of people in post-Apartheid South Africa, Blessing Ngobeni’s large-scale mixed media paintings are fiercely critical of the country’s political elite and the abuse of power.

In addition to having exhibited in several group and solo exhibitions, Blessing has also been the recipient of many awards such as the Reinhold Cassirer Ward 2012 as well as the Gala Ex-Offenders Awards and the ImpACT Awards for Young Professionals. He also sponsors the Blessing Ngobeni Art Prize.
