Contemporary San Art: "Herd of Giraffe" By Artist Thamae Kaashe, Lino Limited Edition, 40 x 18 cm
Thamae’s artistic career started when he joined the Kuru Art Project as an artist in 1990. Since then his work developed through different stages, from fantastic swirling compositions in his early years to colourful work with a lot of small detail, to art representing social and environmental issues such as the linocuts which won him the first prizes in Botswana’s National President’s competitions for 2013 and 2014. He often paints extremely large canvasses but he also enjoys making lino prints, etchings and lithographs. The process of mono printing suits his specific style very well. Together with the Kuru art project Thama’s work had been exhibited worldwide.
