THE SOWETO SCHOOL OF ART | 1960-2010

The Soweto School of Art has been identified and defined in the pioneering book - “South African Fine Art – The Soweto School of Art” ISBN 978-1-920668-00-6, written by the author Martin G. Britz. The book is the result of a 25-year dedicated study focused exclusively on the history and body of artworks created by a specific group of unrecognized, black male fine artists who were active in Soweto, South Africa, during the years spanning 1960 through 2010. The “Soweto School of Art” is the first “school of art” or “art movement” consisting exclusively of black fine artists to emerge from the African continent, marking a significant event in art history.

"I have reflected many times on my connection to Martin, as the book and his vision became actualized. I have had the privilege of being an "insider" in developing his manuscript, which identifies and defines the "Soweto School of Art" making it the first black fine art movement or school of art to emerge from the African continent. It marks a significant milestone in the history of art. Through his commitment and efforts, Martin has preserved an essential part of South Africa's history, particularly black history, that will undoubtedly serve as an instrument of learning and healing that will strengthen and uplift generations to come”
