“I use art as a tool to confront reality. I use art as a tool to get to know the world in which I live. And I use art as a tool to experience my own reality within the world in which I live.”
Manfred Zylla, was born in Augsburg, Germany in 1939, and arrived in South Africa in 1970. A series of woodcuts about the 1976 Soweto uprising, and the creation of large-scale drawings, prints and paintings in the unstable 1980’s gave him a name as an artist highly critical of apartheid.
