Vusi Zwane

professional artist, outreach facilitator, mentor

Vusi Zwane was born in 1957 in Newcastle, in what is today the South African province of KwaZulu (KZ).

In 1974 he left school and moved to Johannesburg and began his lifelong career as a professional artist, spending some time at FUBU Academy (Federated Union of Black Artists) where one of his teachers was Durant Sihlali.

He has worked at the renowned Amakhono Art Centre alongside artists such as Thami Jali, Sandile Zulu and Nhlanhla Xaba.

In 1993 he was one of the first participants in The Caversham Press’s newly established Educational Trust. He began a twenty-year relationship with Caversham, culminating in his most recent participation - as The Caversham Press Artist-in-Residence (2010-2015). Here, he had the opportunity to concentrate on making his own art, assist with various outreach projects, mentor the young artist Simphiwe Cebekhulu, and create designs for Caversham Textiles (established 2015). 

He has recently returned to Newcastle KZN to live and work.
