Walk on the side of Life, until it happens, that one comes across the side of Death - Sam Macholo

Welcome to Iron Artists

Sam Macholo grew up in Sebokeng Zone 3 situated in the Vaal Triangle.

At age 13 he discovered his artistic abilities and started taking art seriously whilst in secondary school. From grade  8 he took art as a subject at school.

He studied at the Vaal University of Technology and holds a National Diploma in Fine Arts and a distinction in B-tech and specialising in printmaking. 

Macholos art is greatly influenced by Surrealism, especially the works of the renowned Salvador Dali.

As a youngster Sam was subjected to and a victim of witchcraft!

In his third year studying at VUT, he realized that working with this theme and expressing himself through art could bring about healing within himself.

The following works expresses what he went through as a young man during that time

Sam discovered that the truth about the practice of witchcraft. It is very elusive and there are few if any valid answers to this phenomenon.

It causes psychological damage, affects ones whole life and causes great fear.

The artist has since matured from producing dark depressive works to lighter pieces albeit in the surrealistic genre that leaves the viewer at peace, enjoying abstract, warm and rustic colours allowing for the imagination to run wild!

One does not become an artist, one is born an artist ...
