I am Walter Fumani Maluleke a visual artist who specializes in charcoal and pastel to bring out the details on canvas, the new body of my work speaks about the children from a tender age but more from rural environments where i grew up, i was raised by a single parent of which is a female figure so yes i sometimes evoke the feelings of how our sister and mothers are treated in SA due to Gender base violence GBV, I'm sending a message to embrace our children and mother's as well.
Where Do You Come From? ( u huma kwihi)
The art works tittle 'where do you come from' as children we often forget where come from literally because our elderly people they dont tell us our roots and how we connect to our fore fathers as a new generation
Who Are You?
Our mother and sister are the one to take care of us as children while our fathers were not there.
Unity Begins at Home
As a child from marginalize village i learn how to approach life in different aspects of life due to playing and sharing with other kids and appreciate what they have in that time
