Dumile Feni: the Story of a Great Artist Volume 1 was written and published following The Dumile Feni Retrospective at the Johannesburg Art Gallery in 2005.Written by Prince Mbusi Dube, who curated the exhibition, the aim of this book is to bring the story of one of South Africas greatest artists to the world. The Dumile Feni story will be published in three volumes. This book, Volume 1, details Dumiles life from his birth in 1942 until he left South Africa in 1968. Volume 2 will document his life in exile in the United Kingdom from 1968 1978 while Volume 3 will cover his life in exile in the United States from 1978 1991. Beautifully illustrated with hundreds of Fenis artworks and photographs, this book reads like a history of South Africa as it provides, through a biographical account of Dumiles life, a social commentary on what was happening in the South African art world at a particular moment in time and place.
