More about the artist...
Mook Lion has just completed his Master’s in Fine Arts at the Durban University of Technology, but he started investigating street art and mural art as visual activism in Durban between 2014 and 2017. He became invested in this form of cultural expression through participating in Hip Hop culture – which focused on graffiti in Durban from the mid- 2000s.
He produce site specific and socially conscious artwork in the public domain – theoretical and historical research as well as primary information gathered through interviews with members of the public, informs his art practice.
Through institutional education at the Durban University of technology, he began attempting to combine academic fine art and graffiti which lead him to this area of interest. Currently, he often work collaboratively with experienced artists and community members – aiming to make art which performs a social and cultural function by beautifying or repurposing wasted space and communicating with the public around social injustices and the importance of nature preservation.
