About Clement Mohale

 
 
  • Biography
    Clement Mohale is a contemporary artist  who has always been passionate about art from an early childhood. My work is vibrant and emotive and I use variety of mediums such as charcoals, pastels, acrylics and oil paints which consists of a palette of basic colours to convey my ideas and feelings. In essence I do not limit myself when it comes to mediums and ideas or concepts. My work is inspired by the daily lived experience and I intend recapture the human experience in all aspects of life. But children often become part of the subject of my work because they are a symbol of hope. Drawing from my family clan history a crown is used as a metaphor for owning to your rights and having the power and the will to decide for the greater good. I use the Johannesburg skyline as a metaphorical kingdom which represents the revisits to my ancestorial past with a current hopeful present. The focus of my work is on socio-political and economic issues such as poverty, lack of shelter, sanitation and education and how it has influenced and or significantly affected the well-being of ordinary people. I want the viewer to communicates their thoughts, feelings and emotions with my work and ask oneself about their status, position and role they playing in making the world a better place for all to live.

    The Lockdown Collection Portfolio Finalist

    An art initiative founded in 2020 to capture South Africa’s historic Covid-19 lockdown and support vulnerable artists.
    Like so many other things in our current Coronavirus world, the world of art and artists is reeling from the shock waves of this global crisis. At the same time, we are more in need of art than ever, of ways to reflect and interpret the space that we find ourselves in.
    The Lockdown Collection (TLC) is a 48-hour-idea-to-launch initiative formed by Sirdar Group, MRS WOOLF and Artist Proof Studio to capture the reality of the Pandemic with and through visual artists. Through the sale of these historic artworks, funds are raised for the newly created Vulnerable Artists Fund (VAF) and these funds are dispersed to keep artists in South Africa sustained and active in their lives and the ongoing creation of their work.
    The initiative has raised over R3.5Million in just over a year and counting and has paid out over 500 grants and bursaries

    2020

    Green Recovery Portfolio Finalist

    The project reflects on strategies to instill hope and to envision climate governance that recognizes a sharing of the benefits and burdens of the transition to net zero carbon. The project included the launch of a South African Visual Art Exhibit and sale of the art of winners of a competition held in collaboration with the University of Johannesburg and Artist Proof Studio among South African art students for print designs on climate change and a hopeful vision for a ‘green recovery’ of our economies. This also included the release of a new virtual choir song titled Time for Hope, in a collaboration between the Canada Climate Law Initiative and Live Canon, with voices and pledges from around the world.

    Managers Choice Award

    The accolade was awarded to me as a result of my creative work for the Cashbuild Art At HeArt Community Competition run in partnership with local primary schools.

Biography

Clement Mohale is a contemporary artist  who has always been passionate about art from an early childhood. My work is vibrant and emotive and I use variety of mediums such as charcoals, pastels, acrylics and oil paints which consists of a palette of basic colours to convey my ideas and feelings. In essence I do not limit myself when it comes to mediums and ideas or concepts. My work is inspired by the daily lived experience and I intend recapture the human experience in all aspects of life. But children often become part of the subject of my work because they are a symbol of hope. Drawing from my family clan history a crown is used as a metaphor for owning to your rights and having the power and the will to decide for the greater good. I use the Johannesburg skyline as a metaphorical kingdom which represents the revisits to my ancestorial past with a current hopeful present. The focus of my work is on socio-political and economic issues such as poverty, lack of shelter, sanitation and education and how it has influenced and or significantly affected the well-being of ordinary people. I want the viewer to communicates their thoughts, feelings and emotions with my work and ask oneself about their status, position and role they playing in making the world a better place for all to live.
