Isaac Zavale is a Mozambican-born artist who grew up in South Africa. He studied at APS and now is based at the POP Studios in Ferreirasdorp, Johannesburg. His family fled to South Africa in 1989 during the civil war in Mozambique between Frelimo and Renamo. Once in South Africa they experienced the IFP and ANC conflict during the late 80s and early 90s. Zavale makes art about his experiences and identity, giving a voice through visual iconography to some of the politics that have shaped his current existence.
