Alfred Budaza


Alfred focuses  primarily on abstract painted carved wood. “I was born in a family where talent and appreciation for art was highly regarded. Through a tedious journey of endless practice and learning in community projects, colleges and workshops. I have progressed a long way to becoming an accomplished artist. 

I define my work as a process whereby happiness and joy is captured in the daily routines and patterns of the people enjoying themselves. I am also focused on portraying uniformity of people in groups and within these groups all obstacles and challenges can be conquered. I am most fond of abstracts often using bright colours and textures to manifest an African feel to my work. I Live in Philippi, Cape Town”
