    Within South Africa we courier your artwork to your door - the shipping cost will show at the checkout.

    When shipping art internationally, two primary options are commonly considered: crated and rolled. Crating involves securely packaging the artwork in a custom-built crate, providing maximum protection against physical damage but often resulting in higher shipping costs due to size and weight.
    On the other hand, rolling art involves taking stretched paintings off the frame, carefully wrapping the artwork and placing it in a protective tube. This method is more cost-effective and suitable for flexible pieces.
    Choosing between crating and rolling depends on the specific artwork's size, fragility, and budget, as well as the destination's shipping requirements and regulations.

    We will be in touch regarding the best options for you.

    Siphamandla Ex

    Siphamandla Ex

    Siphamandla Ex is based in Johannesburg but is originally from Bilanyoni village in northern KwaZulu-Natal. He grew up under the care of his grandmother.

    Though he never pursued formal education in visual art, his passion for drawing has been evident since childhood. His dedication to his craft has led him to collaborate with various artists over the years, including hosting group exhibitions that showcased well-established names in the art scene. Before pursuing art full-time in 2019, Siphamandla worked as a financial advisor, bringing a unique perspective that blends pragmatism with passion to his artistic practice.

    His art revolves around the richness of the Black experience in everyday life, steering away from narratives solely focused on struggle and poverty. Instead, he celebrates the multifaceted nature of Black identity and the vibrant tapestry of Black life.

    Siphamandla aims to showcase the joy, complexity, and resourcefulness inherent in Black life. He believes that celebrating culture doesn’t need grand gestures; it’s present in the everyday choices we make about how we present ourselves and engage with the world.

    Besides, being an artist, Siphamandla is also a music producer/composer, and a basketball player. One of his aspirations, is to establish a non-profit organisation aimed at keeping children away from the streets. This initiative would offer shelter, nutrition, and recreational programs, ensuring that all children have equal opportunities in life.

    Siphamandla Ex is represented by The Artists Gallery in Cape Town.
