Art @ FNCC

On Monday, 20 January, upcoming artists Fillow Nghipandulwa and Petrus Amuthenu will open their joint exhibition “Welcome to My World” at the FNCC Gallery. This event is followed by “Artistic Expressions”, an exhibition of FNCC’s photography students of 2013, opening on Tuesday, 21 January, at the Restaurant La Bonne Table next to the FNCC.
Fillow Nghipandulwa, 39, hails from Okaku in the Oshana Region of Namibia and started painting at an early age. When attending a cardboard printing workshop in Tsumeb in 1994, he was encouraged by the lecturer, Joseph Madisia, to make art that reflects his own culture. “All my work has a message to convey about the past and the present of the people of Namibia and Africa as a whole”, says Fillow. He presents a collection of mixed media artworks. His main subject matter in this exhibiton is African women.
