Bale steps out of comfort zone


Local fine art artist, Kenneth Bale, whose talent has grown tremendously, continues to wonder after challenging himself to make murals, something he has not done before.

The young artist aced the challenge and won a couple of hearts where he was commissioned by different individuals to do more beautiful arts. In an interview with Arts&Culture, Bale said doing murals was a bit out of his element at first, but since he is not the type to shy away from a challenge, he went on and did it even with little or no experience.

He added that he did his signature rainbow rhinos at Northside Primary School and then went on and did them again at Mmokolodi Nature Reserve. “I have a few more murals lined up. Basically the colourful rhino symbolises and raises awareness about the beauty of this rare breed of wildlife and the tragedy is they are being illegally hunted. We need to protect them for the next generations to experience too. The challenge I encountered while doing those art murals was the harsh weather. Working outdoors was at most times affected by the hot weather, which means it slowed me down since I had to take long breaks due to the heat. But challenges come with lessons so I learnt about the safety of working on different heights and landscapes,” he said.
