Cure :: Blessing Ngobeni

Ngobeni brings with him a unique style and a critique of political regimes, Ngobeni made the corruption, incompetence and duplicity of current South African ruling elite the subjects of his art. He tackles the disconcerting consequences of betraying democratic ideals, the failure to learn from historical tragedies and the expanding gap between the rich and poor. This critique is informed by Ngobeni’s own experience, the hardships and challenges he had to confront as a child and adolescent.

Ngobeni artwork is brought to life by the amazing UJ Choir’s rendition of Adoramus Te Eric Barnum (1979 -) featured on the Sweet Day album.
