EXHIBITOR PROFILE - Nkosilathi Misterbone Jubane

Name: Nkosilathi Misterbone Jubane
Biography: My name is Nkosilathi Jubane, born on 06 January 1976 in Rhodesia. I came to SA in 1996. I stay in Braamforntein, Johannesburg. I developed the love for art at the age of seven, and I believe I inherited the gift from my mother whose hobby was sketching at the age of seven. In 1992 I finished my higher education then went to Mzilikazi art and Craft center for art classes doing Metal sculpture, Fine art, Ceramic sculpture and Wood curving for nine months. Later in 1993 I had the opportunity of watching someone (neighbor artist ) doing scrimshaw on black serpentine stone and my 'appetite' for this form of art was 'whetted'. I tried my hand in scrimshaw on black serpentine stone for the first time, my first work was a success. From there on I never stopped. From 1996 I have been doing scrimshaw full time for living mainly in JHB, Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa. Scrimshaw was the name given to handiwork created by the whalers made from the byproducts of harvesting marine mammals. It was most commonly made out of the bones and teeth of Sperm Whales, the baleen of other Whales, and the tusks of walruses.It took the form of elaborate carvings in the form of pictures and lettering on the surface of the bone or tooth, with the engraving highlighted using the pigment, or small sculptures made from the same materiel. The making of scrimshaw began on whaling ships between 1817 to 1824 on the Pacific Ocean, and survived until the ban on commercial whaling. The practice survives as a hobby and as a trade for commercial artist. A maker of scrimshaw is a scrimshander. In 2007 I was honored to become a member of the Knifemaker's Guild of Southern Africa as an associate member specializing in Scrimshaw. I am very proud to be a member of this prestigious guild. I normally use as my 'canvas' ivory substitutes, Hippo tooth and Elephant ivory (if and when it can be legally obtained) and any animal bone. I like doing both color and black and white, using line and stippling method respectively. I've done scrimshaw for knife collectors like Allan Ingals and knife makers like S.Mackrill, Mike Barnes the late and the 'Master Blade-smith's in South Africa Kervin Harvey, Trevor and Barry Burger and to mention but a few. Although I'm a gifted wood and ivory carver my passion remains for scrimshaw then painting comes next. I have also done a Blade Smith course with Stuart Smith. Types of scrimshaw: Free standing, and knife handles. I would like to Thank God for saving my soul, and many things He has done for me including this gift of art. I believe art is everything. and also to thank all the people who has helped me to be where I am at the moment. People like: Allan Ingals, Bjorg Bostad Krane, S.Makrill Custom Knives, Mike Barnes and all the members of the Guild. May the good Lord bless them. Comment : Color and monochrome scrimshaw, wildlife and the human form and portraits. No brochure but digital photographs available on request.
