Boyce Magandela (b.1979) was born in Khayelitsha, Cape Town and studied art at the Community Art Project (2003). Magandela is interested in the changing social dynamics of his community. He enjoys documenting the many ways in which women are becoming more self-sufficient and less reliant on their male counterparts for support. He captures these sentiments in his portraits of daily life.
In 2006 he was a Brett Kebble Award Exhibition Finalist and he has exhibited successfully in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Austria and Germany. His solo exhibition was held at The Winchester Hotel in Cape Town in 2003. Magandela has been involved in a number of workshops and has taken part in at least ten group exhibitions, the most recent being, Telling our Story (2014), The Cape Gallery, Cape Town.
