Lulama Wolf (b. 1994) is a visual artist who lives and works in Johannesburg, South Africa.Read More
Her work is at the intersection of neo-expression and modern African art, Wolf interrogates the pre-colonial African experience through the contemporary mind by using smearing, scraped and deep pigment techniques that were used in vernacular architecture or the patterns created by mostly women to decorate African homes.
History and proof of life are the core language in her work, where there is little to no reference of life in black spirituality she uses that narrative by staging her 2D Acrylic paintings to embody the simplicity of the native eye. Her motivation is tender and protective of her imaginary world or rather her symbolic view of how her world looks in an alternate universe. She is set on creating a photographic/graphic experience that morphs and shape shifts into two-dimensional plane or higher.
