Zapiro – My Big Fat Gupta Wedding
Zapiro needs no introduction. His eighteenth annual speaks for itself
Zapiro needs no introduction. His eighteenth annual speaks for itself. No year would be complete without Zapiro’s annual collection of cartoons, and in this latest book of sharp-witted and well-timed cartoons, Zapiro once again proves himself a satirical genius, ensuring that no event passes by without comment or a laugh.
Born in Cape Town, Zapiro – aka Jonathan Shapiro – studied architecture at UCT before moving to the art campus, Michaelis. Following his two-year conscription in the army, he applied for and was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to study cartooning at the School of Visual Arts in New York for two years.
The name Zapiro was derived from the nickname of a fellow pupil at Rondebosch Boys High School, Martin Zapiro, whose friends called him Zap. After Martin’s death, Zapiro adopted the name.
