About The Artist

david sibanda

David Sibanda was born in Buffelspruit, in what is now the Northwest Province, on the 20th of December, 1956, the second of 5 boys and 3 girls.
It was at the Edward Primary School where David was first exposed to art. Students were encouraged to carve on wood and David found his calling in carvings of humans and bowls.
By 1986, David’s reputation had been growing and he was invited, by Krall Kraft, to move to White River, Mpumalanga and teach carving to young, aspiring sculptors.
He found a suitable plot in Letlhabile, near Brits in the North West Province, where he finally put his gifts to work. It was there that he created the Sibanda Arts and Crafts Centre were David had the opportunity to teach others in the community and to work with them. Some of the artwork produced by David includes the Big Five portraits and carvings of various other animals.
