esther mahlangu

Posted on Sep 18, 2014

South African artist, Esther Mahlangu, is currently at the VMFA painting two large-scale murals. In a few weeks I will film her in conversation with the curator of African Art and make a short video profile of her and her work.

Esther Mahlangu uses a painting technique from her Ndebela region, handed down through generations of women. Traditionally such large scale murals are painted on the sides of houses. Her brushes include chicken feathers, which enable her to create fine lines of paint, all of which are hand-done without any tape or straight edge guides.
