Lulama Wolf, Is this still life? IV (amandla amakhulu), 2022, Acrylic and sand on canvas 120 x 120 cm. Courtesy of THK Gallery.

Wolf interrogates the pre-colonial African experience through the contemporary mind by using smearing, scraping, and deep pigment techniques that were used in vernacular architecture, and patterns created largely by women to decorate traditional African homes. Her mediums are acrylic and sand on canvas.

Wolf was named as one of Business Day’s Wanted21 Young and Vital Artists, South Africa, as well as a finalist of the Emergence Art Prize hosted by THK Gallery (2020). She is currently collaborating with H&M. Lulama Wolf will be presented by THK Gallery at 1-54 New York 2023!
