    About the artist

    Esther Mahlangu is a well-known South African artist. Born in 1935, Esther was taught painting and beadwork in the distinctively graphic style of the South Ndebele people. This painting technique is handed down through the female side of the family, with its meanings and symbols learned only by women. Whilst advancing the traditions of the Ndebele style through worldwide museum and commercial exhibitions, she has reached a wider audience by also applying her designs to ceramics, clothing and even an airplane. Probably her most famous work is the Art Car she decorated for BMW in 1991. Esther continues to work into her eighties with commissions from around the world.
