Sam Nhlengethwa by Kathryn Smith describes the life and work of collagist, painter and jazz fanatic Sam Nhlengethwa, who has been at the centre of some of the most influential moments and movements in recent South African art history. A student at Rorkes Drift Art Centre and Bill Ainslies Johannesburg Art Fondation, he is a resident of the well known Bag Factory artists' studios in Newtown Johannesburg. This book is the first to consolidate the artists chief concerns and motifs, which range from early experiments in abstraction, vibrant interpretations of urban and township life, resonant and harrowing social and political commentaries and keenly observed portaits of jazz personalities he so admires.
