Malose Pete

Born September 18 1989 in Polokwane, Limpopo, Malose grew up in a rural place called Ga-Mahoai. He attended junior schooling at Rachebole primary where there were no art classes but realised his art potential by making class illustrations of plant and animal structures for teachers. BK Matlala Commercial High is where he attended his senior schooling years and matriculated in 2007.
Formal education in art begun when he enrolled at Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) in the Fine Arts Department in 2008 until 2011 when he completed for a B-Tech Degree qualification majoring in Painting and Sculpture. Some of his works featured in the Art industry since 2010. Including the 2011 ABSA L’Atelier Art Competition, the Sasol New Signatures Art Competition 2011, the PPC Young Concrete Sculptors Awards 2012, Sanlam Portrait Awards 2019 and completed several public and private commissions in both sculpture and painting.
The most notable being the Sefako Makgatho figure done for The National Heritage Monument currently at Century City, Cape Town. He also had joint exhibitions and solo shows at Trent Gallery, at Art Lovers 1932, the Pretoria Arts Association and The IS Gallery in Franschoek, Western Cape.


Mr Pete has been lecturing part time at The Fine and Applied Department of The Tshwane University of Technology since 2015 in sculpture and painting.
In 2018 he was part of the Polokwane regional judging panel for the Sasol New Signatures national art competition.



‘I believe culture is a collection of traits that developed over time intended to tackle reoccurring issues every community faced.  African people have some of the richest culture diversity available; meaning the widest range of solutions humanity has and may yet to handle.

It is a bit unfortunate that some of the solutions were still in their infancy when they met globalization and thus seemed inferior and then discarded. With my works I seek to bring forth some of the abandoned African project and ideas. That perhaps if they are seen and celebrated they may pick up the energy again. They may meet a modern mind who takes them to their rightful heights.The artworks are a further exploration of one of the first art experiences. The art of hut decoration using soil and cow dung.
