Usha Seejarim is fascinated by the mundane and the ordinary where domestic and found materials make a distinct appearance in her work. She has had more than seven solo exhibitions and is perhaps most known for her public art having completed a number of commissions including the Freedom Charter in Kliptown, ‘Pin Code’ for MTN, the façade of the SA Chancery in Addis Ababa, the ‘Why Men’ in Sandton and a seeded portrait for Nelson Madela’s funeral.
Seejarim has a deep commitment to social development. With a background in art education at grass roots level and a propensity for scale through public art, Usha brings these together to create large scaled participatory and community based public art projects.
