SIGNED ON FRONT AND VERSO
Phindile Mamba is a self-taught artist from Mbabane who has been a full-time artist since 2014 after participating in The Women's Voices Project. “Most of my paintings are about women, I see them struggling and living a very painful life. Women are abused because they do not have the power to fight, and this touches me deeply and shows in many of my paintings. I also explore happier topics as some women do live a happy life with their families. I also explore the ideas that women can do everything a man does and have the power. People in Eswatini must start trusting women and giving them respect and power. But women must also make themselves powerful!”
Phindile has completed high school.
Phindile has participated in the FNB Art Jo'burg Fair in 2019.
Phindile's work was part of a book on female artists of Africa. https://en.calameo.com/read/006123554654b0c17fff2?fbclid=IwAR0D-zMHrWDbhFBa0C-1xBTaU8lOziDrY1KYP5sziMWbfFGFQo2mrRJ
