Caleb Makaza

An exhibit of works by Limestone College student and Zimbabwe native Caleb Makaza is on display through April 26 at the Cherokee County History and Arts Museum Event Hall at 301 College Drive in Gaffney.

Nature has been and continues to be the backbone of Makaza's creativity and this is the focus of most of his works. "From a tender age," says Makaza, "my life has been shaped and characterized by art. My works range from realism to surrealism."

In discussing his artwork and the upcoming exhibit, Mr. Makaza said, "nature fuels my flames of inspiration until the colors speak and subjects capture the beauty of creation. I love using mixed media in my paintings and drawings because I believe materials are interdependent as they aid each other to give a powerful hue. I love surrealism as it has a way of expressing a language that I can freely use in my amazing journey of discovery. After experimenting with different techniques and media, I have been able to create places I can escape to within my art pieces. Every work has been an adventure and I invite you to go with me and to enjoy my experience."
