Ndabuko Ntuli was born in 1975 in Kwa Zulu Natal. His grandfather, Masobeshe Ntuli, an artist and prolific sculptor, used stone as a medium of expression, working in stone carving from the mid 40s until the day he passed away in 1985.

For the past 15 years, Ndabuko has sold most of his work at commercial galleries and private collections across the world. In 2015, together with artist Bongi Bhengue, Ntuli was selected to participate in Color Me Africa, Chicago Art Fair, to commemorate 20 years of Democratic rule in South Africa.

Ndabuko is a traditional Maskandi music recording artist with five albums behind his name. He has worked along the most respected musicians in the country. He also is a practicing traditional healer, using bone throwing as his main divination medium. He recently found a way of fusing all three of his talents into his work by using bones, predictions and messages to compose his new works.

‘As an artist, I find myself at a transitional stage in my work, transforming from commercial, to more conceptually charged works. Challenged by trash in the streets, engaging more with it as an important art material that adds value to my artistic narrative’.

Ndabuko recently took part in Assemblage’s peer mentorship programme and participated in the Joburg Art Week. He will be joining the Assemblage Studio community soon.
