Birthday Wishes to our Global Icon - Mme Esther Mahlangu

Today is a special day as we celebrate the birthday of multi-award-winning, globally acclaimed Mme Esther Ndebele, visual artist and SA’s national treasure.

She is most famous for doing, insinuating Ndebele cultural and visual traditions into high art circles and popular culture. “Her immaculate paintings and sculptures, pulsating with bright colours popping against black borders and patterns have been exhibited at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, The British Museum, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, the National Museum of African Art at The Smithsonian Institution and, of course, famously at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, when she made her debut in Europe in the late eighties”.

We celebrate this legendary artist. Thank you for the immense opportunities that you have created for us and for putting South Africa on the map. Thank you for opening doors for AmaNdebele.

On behalf of the CEO, Council, Management and Staff of Freedom Park we wish Mme Mahlangu a blessed birthday. May you live a rich, long life filled with joy, wonder and great health.
