"Master Mind" is an innovative cardboard and linoleum printmaking exhibition by Lok Kandjengo. Kandjengo’s inspiration for print making is derived from his environment, culture and his origin. In Master Mind the artist continue to explore facets of his culture, life experience as well as to celebrate Namibia’s landscape.

Kandjengo is a dedicated young Namibian visual artist who constantly strives towards self-improvement through art. The artworks in Master Mind serves as an encouragement to fellow Namibians who wish to pursue a career in print making and as inspiration for others to contribute towards making Namibia a better place to live in the 21st century, as we march towards Vision 2030.

“The message I want to convey is quite simple: “work hard and don’t expect the government to hand out jobs” –Kandjengo

Kandjengo takes social responsibilities at heart. Part of this is his involvement in mural paintings, in the development of teaching materials for sign language, and cataloguing for the newly founded TATE Institute of technology (for the Deaf and Hard of hearing). The artist plans are to become more involved in projects that address the issues of unemployment, training and education in Namibia.

Kandjengo uses his talent to educate and communicate with his viewers about social issues such as youth empowerment and job creation.


This exhibition is a reflection of Kandjengo’s print making technical skills. Each artwork provides a unique printing style, colour use, which the artist has mastered over the years.
