Qgam Khaxa (b. 1965, signs QGQM) - Khoisan people, Ghanzi, Botswana
Reduction linocut, #11/16, 2002
(11 1/4" h. x 17"w. image size on 19 3/4" x 22 1/2" sheet)

Born in the Ghanzi district, Qgam joined the Kuru Art Project in 1997. Through his art, he portrays a deep knowledge of the animals, the veld and the traditions of his people. He is a good traditional dancer and often takes part in dance ceremonies in the village. Along with the other Kuru artists, his work has been exhibited worldwide. He attended the Thapong International Artists workshop in Botswana in 1999 and found it a very enriching experience. He enjoyed working with different artists but seems not to have been influenced by their styles, which differs widely from his own.  (Bio courtesy of Kuru Art Project).
