Jamal Nxedlana, born in Durban, living in Johannesburg, South Africa is a visual artist and cultural organiser. He is in the unique position of being both a cultural producer and the founder of a number of independent organisations which support the South Africa arts community.
His photography and images are rooted in Afrosurrealism and explore themes of race, identity, popular culture and mass production. Nxedlana’s images were recently featured in The New Black Vanguard, a book and exhibition addressing the radical transformation taking place in fashion and art today.
He is the founder of Bubblegum Club, a cultural organisation and digital platform which curates and celebrates new pop culture.
