Biography   Samson Mnisi


Mnisi's childhood exposure to traditional healing practices, which are abstract, influenced the development of his oeuvre into abstract expressionism.  Symbols, sometimes incised into the human skin, play an important role in rituals and Mnisi incorporated these symbols into his conceptual creations in order to project a deep sense of mysterious communication.  Mnisi commented as follow on his work: "l try to follow [the] old traditions, even though the ritual is different and for different reasons.  I [sic] used them to communicate my own personal history, at the beginning it was about the ritual, later it was about art, now it is a fresh language for me and those who understand it".
