Senzo Duma

Senzo is a tall, serious young man from Lidgetton who Fee noticed that he enjoyed sporting a red bow tie to the studio on occasions. His flair for fashion and design come through in his painting.

He went to Jabula Combined School and afterwards worked at Dargle Valley Pottery making large-scale terracotta pots.

Senzo’s relative, Wiseman Ndlovu, an Ardmore painter, saw that Senzo had a talent for drawing and painting and encouraged him to join the studio at Ardmore in January 2011.

Senzo developed his realistic painting style and subtle, graded use of colour under the mentorship of his cousin Wiseman and that of Siyabonga Mabaso, as well as Ardmore’s gifted designer Zinhle Nene.

Senzo’s work now stands on its own merit and his penchant for painting animal and botanical realism results in artworks being highly sought-after by collectors.

Senzo has earned himself a place amongst the top painters at Ardmore, and his work is exhibited at every major local and international Ardmore exhibition. Fee also applauds him for his dedication to Ardmore, his creativity and as parent.
