Pat Mautloa

Kagiso Patrick Mautloa was born in 1952 in Ventersdorp, in what was called the Western Transvaal. He grew up in Soweto and received art lessons at the Mofolo Art Centre in the 1970s from artist Dan Rakgoathe, who encouraged him to develop his imagination through drawing. He was involved in many of the local and international artists’ workshops of the ‘80s and early ‘90s, which helped a whole generation of black South African artists emerge onto the art scene despite the apartheid strictures imposed on them. He was a founding member of the Fordsburg Bag Factory where he continues to work from his studio, filled with pieces of the urban debris collected on his daily walks through the city.
