William Kentridge

Artworks

    • William Kentridge (b. 1955, Johannesburg) is known for his prints, drawings and animated expressionist films that explore the concerns of post-apartheid South Africa. The artist draws and erases in the process of creating a work, then projects the looped images to show the stages of creation and articulate the narrative of the oeuvre. In his often-monochromatic works, subjects of time, colonialism and political aspirations are intimately explored. Kentridge has been praised internationally for his unique hybridized method of practice, innovatively manipulating new media and drawing that does not exploit the complex political situation in South Africa and provides insight and knowledge of the context to the global art milieu.
