George Pemba – Painter of the People
Out of stock
While Pemba is a fairly well-known artist in the Eastern Cape, he has only recently begun to get wider national exposure. Pemba struggled to get formal training, and to earn a living form his art. With the introduction of apartheid policies in 1948, Pemba found it even more difficult to pursue his art. He decided not to leave the country but to carry on painting the living conditions and cultures of the African people. This books tells the story of his life and shows many aspects of his work as it developed over time, through colour reproductions, and black and white photographs.
