"Tribute to Lucky Sibiya"
1999-10-07 until 1999-11-05
Unisa Art Gallery
Pretoria, , ZA South Africa

Unisa Art Gallery will be hosting an important exhibition of the artworks of the late Lucky Sibiya (1942-1999). For schools and educational institutions this exhibition serves as a valuable resource as he was an important South African artist who features in the Matric syllabus. Due to the generosity of the Everard Read Gallery, Unisa is very privileged to be able to pay tribute to one of the regions most recognised artists.

Lucky Sibiya is internationally renowned for his abstract paintings and sculptural carvings. Sibiya's works have been exhibited, and collected locally and globally. His richly carved flowing rhythmic lines and painted wood panels are perhaps what he is best known for, yet he also experimented freely with mixed media and found objects. He mastered the art of reinventing the discarded by incorporating for example, scraps of broken piano, pieces of leather, wood, material and metal into his work. Lucky Sibiya made an enormous and lasting contribution to South African art.

Numerous artists are inspired by his work. Lucky also supported other artists by collecting their work and involving himself in informal teaching and sharing his creative inspiration and expertise with young artists.
