From the collection Nase Mhlabeni ( "As in Heven so shall it be on earth")
Mncedi Madolo draws from print ads and magazine covers to satirize his attempts at selling fast solutions to complex problems. Mncedi’s s layered works are of mixed-media underscores which depict the impact of advertisements on South African identity and it’s physical urban landscapes.
"I utilize African mythology as a metaphor in my works, implementing African spirituality, customs, culture and contemporary life as a way of connecting to universality and globalization. The metaphysical landscapes is set as a space of new discovery, where characters engage in a spiritual journey. My subjects have unlimited power, they question their state of human existence in the 21st century. They embark as an assignment of evolution, discovery and progression." - Mncedi Madolo
