In this edition of Intraparadox series, Part 1 of a planned two part series, I talk to Nkhensani Rihlampfu against the backdrop of his solo exhibition Mintsu Island. Our conversation traces his coming of age in his home town Modimolle, his growing interest in studying art and the ensuing challenges that cropped up in his life journey to become a practicing fine artists. This is a story of a triumphant spirit against the odds.
