Springs Art Gallery Presents Kungani Exhibition

The Springs Art Gallery is hosting its next exhibition titled Kungani – a Zulu word that means Why.


This group exhibition reflects a day in the life of six interdisciplinary artists. It is from a collaboration between the artists and Obtain Art, an online art gallery promoting and showcasing artworks for sale by emerging as well as mid-career and established artists working in different media and genre.

Kungani, just as the name describes, reflects on current societal social conditions that disrupt or damage society, violence, inequality, racism, and the like. Through their personal expressions, this group of artists explore and response to what happens around them and affect them personally. This ends up expressed through a variety of mediums, from collage to painting and drawing.

The artists hope that their art can have much influence on these social issues, create awareness and expressions from the audience without losing sight of the aesthetic purpose of their works while presenting a specific but universal message of hope, change, and unity. The six interdisciplinary artists are:


  • David Tsoka
  • Dipuo Sithole
  • Johan Van Wyk
  • Sphiwe Fokazi
  • Thato Nkosi
  • Thulani Nhlapo

kungani opened on Friday, 26 February, at the Springs Art Gallery in Springs and runs until Wednesday, 31 March.  The art gallery is open Monday through Friday, 09h00 – 16h00 for public viewing – the gallery is closed weekends and public holidays.

The exhibition can also be viewed online at
