Nkosinathi Thomas Ngulube

Ngulube practices as an abstract artist residing in Johannesburg, whom is universally inspired by art. The hustle and bustle of life in the city inspires Ngulube, he notes; “I stand in the middle of it and observe its crookedness, its beauty, its mysterious people from all over.” One will also find inspiration in his work from religious Gospel stories and in some instances aspects of nature. Ngulube is intrigued by the notion of female qualities, he describes on the elements which inspire, “Her unique strengths, her passion, her masterpiece figure, her patience and her dramatic birth giving experiences which inaugurate, unify and balance the conflicts within my creative space.” Ngulube practices in a number of Fine Art Fields, namely sculptural work, printmaking, and painting. His process of creation breaks away from naturalistic renderings as he feels his analysis and opinion of art is founded on the reduction of visual facts. He states’ “I am greatly inspired by my love for art, what I believe, in, what I know, what is happening around me, my experiences.” His concepts are motivated by immediate existence, for to create art he feels he must be free within and in order to do so he states; “I must praise my God, which is where my spiritual freedom comes from. By the hands of the almighty do I execute my ideas for the masses as a social reformer.”
