Allan Ndlovu

Allan was born on the 5th of January 2005 in Northdale Hospital, Pietermaritzburg.

He attended Eastwood School, but left due to an unsettled life at his family home and started working at a carwash.

He came to Howick in 2010 to visit an aunt, which is when he met Sthabiso Hadebe, a painter at Ardmore.

Three years later, Allan decided that he wanted to pursue a career at Ardmore, and asked Sthabiso to introduce him to Fée Halsted.

Allan says: “I am happy to be in the world of art, and thank Fée for helping me, to improve myself as an artist.”

In 2016, Allan found his niche as a colourist and is now recognised for his stylised and graphic-like imagery.

With the launch of the Cole & Son wallpaper in 2017, Allan worked closely on the wallpaper design ‘Acacia’.

His pieces were much admired and have proved popular with international buyers.
