The Assassination by Lucky Sibiya
The Assassination
(Woodcut, 81/225)

Born in Vryheid, South Africa, Lucky Sibiya grew up in Soweto. As a young boy he experimented with woodcarvings and after he left school he was supported by Cecil Skotnes, one of South Africa's foremost contemporary artists. He became internationally renowned for his abstract paintings and sculptural carvings.

This print is from a series of woodcuts based on the theatrical play, Umabatha, by Welcome Msomi.  The play portrays historical Zulu events woven around Shakespeare’s plot in Macbeth.
