African Art - John Muafangejo - Fact file and examples of his artwork

African Art - John Muafangejo - Fact file and examples of his artwork

In this resource I have put together a brief fact file of Namibian Artist - John Muafangejo. This resource also inlcudes 5 pages of his most iconic artwork. This resource would be a great starting point for anyone studying woodcut, linocut and etchings, and provide the stimulus to be a great introductory page in a sketchbook. I have used this artwork as a stimulus for a project with my Year 6 class. These images are bold and striking and ALL the children in my Year 6 class achieved their own interpretation of his work. We used black and white acrylic paint and MDF boards and the results were stunning. Enjoy!
