Owen Ndou

Country:Republic of South Africa

Style: Sculpture

Medium: Wood

Fun Fact:Owen Ndou was born in 1964 in Limpopo where he lives and works today. A self taught artist, Ndou began carving in 1984 and had his first exhibition at the Everard Read Gallery in 1987. His work engages with and draws from the biblical, political and traditional. Since his first show he has regularly exhibited in both private and national galleries in Johannesburg, Cape Town, London and Amsterdam. His work is well represented in public and private collections in South Africa and around the world.

Quote:Owen views religion in a spiritual way. He doesn’t deny any other religion, but views his affiliation to the Bible as an interpreter of metaphors and messages. In this way, Owen views his responsibility as an artist as a communicator to peoples spiritual nature; through addressing fundamental human principles by exploring themes dealing with religion, culture and mythology.
