Fumani Maluleke


Fumani Walter Maluleke was born in Limpopo in 1991, in a village called Thomo.  Fumani has carried with him the spirit of art for as long as he can remember, from being the unruly child who drew in school books, and on the walls of his family home, to being the one who won all the art prizes and then the one who shared his skill set with the next generation as an art teacher.

As a passionate visual artist, He participated in mural painting at his community crèche called Ma E’no early learning centre in 2012/06/10. He then enrolled with (TNC) Tshwane TVET North College for a Diploma in Art and Graphic Design in 2015/01/022016/23/06 after his matric.  

He was awarded a certificate of appreciation by the Department of Art and Culture, for assisting with the realization of youth goals at Ekurhuleni performing Art competitions in 2016/19/03.  

Since then Maluleke has exhibited in solo and  group exhibitions  and the body of his works were able to expose his work to other parts of the country and South Africa at large by interpreting and communicating Africans’ struggle through visual arts  

Maluleke’s practice unapologetically reminds us that these are narratives of African realities and that maybe the best means of presenting these narratives is by utilizing elements that speak directly to authentic African experiences.
