“Lament Upon Representation of the African Culture” is part of a series where Sibiya`s  explores the dreams and aspirations of people  and how society had shackled them from succeeding. He considers the negative representation of African men in society and the doubts that have been placed upon them, inhibiting them from fulfilling their dreams. It is a complex work, both in content and execution. Sibiya interviewed various men regarding their aspirations in order to understand each ones personal experience. In this piece he used a number of selected props to portray each man’s dream and to tell their stories in the context of a complex social system in which they have been severely undervalued.

The printing of the work is highly technical not only due to its scale but also because it is a multi couloured, hand crafted screen print / linocut on two sheets of paper. The end result is exceedingly difficult to master but has been achieved by Bambo Sibiya as further proof of his exceptional talent and skill.
