About Ben
1938 - 1997 Benjamin Mzimkulu Macala spent part of his youth in the countryside and later grew up as a member of an urbanized Black community in Gauteng. He started his art career in 1965 and although largely self-taught, he from time to time worked with fellow artist, Ephraim Ngatane. He also attended classes under Cecil Skotnes and Bill Ainslie at the Jubilee Art Centre in Johannesburg in 1967. Although Macala started off as a sculptor he also became very well known for his pictorial work. In his sculpture as well as in his paintings and drawings he is especially fond of creating heads, most often female heads as well as mother-and-child studies. He worked in crayons and mixed media. Some of his earlier faces were Madonna-like, with serene qualities. These later became popularized and stylized and he began presenting these faces in group compositions. His latter works before his death tend to be more refined and also decorative, compared to many of his earlier works. He was one of the first commercial black artists whos work was seen all over the country, even in the days of Apartheid. Represented: Many private collections in South Africa and abroad. South African National Gallery, Cape Town, King George IV Gallery, Port Elizabeth, University of Fort Hare, University of the Witwatersrand, University of South Africa as well as other University collections
