Unathi Sigenu (1977 – 2013)
Less than a month after his November collaborative show at BRUNDYN+ , we bid a sad farewell to Cape Town-born artist Unathi Sigenu. The show, which was an installation of their award-winning piece, Die Kat, was in collaboration with one of Sigenu’s co founding members of the Gugulethu-based collective, Gugulective. Sigenu’s CV is certainly quite impressive, but more so was his warm personality, his leadership skills, and his remarkable ability to assume a much needed big-brother role to those who needed him to. Unathi Sigenu will sorely be missed by many who interacted with him.
