More from Vula Amehlo: Painting Marikana’s Tragedy

We wanted to share this link from The Daily Maverick–it’s an article from November 2012 in which artist Lehlohonolo Dhlamini, one of the artists affiliated with Vula Amehlo, was interviewed.  Dhlamini painted a series of watercolors dealing with the Marikana Massacre, where police retaliation against a mining strike left 34 dead.  You can read more about the event, and the artist’s reaction to it, at the link above.
