Banele’s typical bold and colourful painterly surfaces have captured the attention of both local and international art lovers and investors alike. Commenting on current socio-economic issues and celebrating the overcoming spirit of his people, Banele’s artworks always astound the viewer.
“Indlela Yaziwa Ngumhambi Wayo” details three men striding towards an unseen goal with super-hero determination. This is not by accident as Banele has recently achieved exactly that in his community. He empowers those less fortunate in his community by opening a car-wash facility and creating employment. With the earnings, his Covid-wacked workers can now pay for their school fees and other daily essentials that would otherwise be impossible.
