Biography   Gerard Bhengu


Gerard Bhengu (1910 Centecow, South Africa- 1990)

He was born on September 6, 1910 to Eugenia and Timothy Bhengu, who lived in southern KwaZulu-Natal at Centecow, a Roman Catholic mission station.  As a child, Bhengu first showed signs of creativity by drawing with charcoal from the fire on the walls of his homestead.  He received his early education at Centecow and his teacher, Albert Duma, who spotted his talent, gave him a set of crayons.  He was further encouraged by Mr. Jowett, the schools inspector, who presented him with a watercolour set.

In 1925 Bhengu was treated for tuberculosis by Dr Max Kohler in the Centecow mission hospital.  He paid for his treatment with his artworks.
