Trianus Nakale was born into a loving family of educators and creatives in the village of Ekoka in the Ohangwena region of northern Namibia. He completed his schooling in the area, before relocating to Windhoek to further his studies. He graduated from the College of the Arts in 2013, with a diploma in visual arts. Afterwards, he went on to the University of Namibia to further his art education which was interrupted by a residency at the Umèa University in Sweden.
Nakale regularly participated in group exhibitions and workshops and had his first solo exhibition titled 'Impact' in 2017.
Back in Namibia Nakale helped out on the family farm for a few years and only recently came back to Windhoek for work and to focus on his art again. In his upcoming solo exhibition Speak Out he scrutinises the never-ending news in the local papers on violence against women and children. He reflects on the public reaction towards these cruelties, trying to understand the society he lives in. His often provocative visuals and words are drawn in blue, red and black ink pens.
