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".
