David Mogano (1932 - 2002)

Phaswane David Mogano was born in Pietersburg, Limpopo Province, South Africa, in 1932.  He received his schooling at the Mogano Primary and High Schools.  During 1959 he had some informal art training at the Polly Street Art Centre under Cecil Skotnes and Sydney Kumalo

Mogano lived in Johannesburg for many years.  It was life in the townships and city that appealed most strongly to his imagination and for which he was renowned.  Social criticism, social documentation, the integration of tradition and Western modes of dress and dwelling, often with humor, are injected into the paintings of life in townships from Pimsville (now destroyed) to Pietersburg, Alexandra, Kgomo City, Early Western Township and Lebowa.

He painted exclusively in watercolor.

A collection of his paintings was exhibited at the Standard Bank Gallery, Johannesburg in July and August 1999.  The exhibition reflected the unique vision of an artist over a period of 25 years of painting.

He was a member of the Artists' Market since 1964
