Born in Apparteid South Africa, Jabulani Maseko was the first black student at Redhill, a private school for white children at the time. He grew between the reality of the townships and this “clandestine” education, protected by his liberal teachers from the authorities. He left SouthAfrica at 18 years old when the regime coincidently collapsed. He did his higher education in the Uk where he became master of art at the Slade school of fine art in London. He has exhibited in group and solo shows in the United states of America, across Europe and also in Africa. His work is part of various collections. His work is deeply personal and reflective of his understanding of the self, the body and its context in the wider world.
