South African Artist

Alex Van Oss profiles William Kentridge, a South African artist whose work focuses on the brutalized society left behind in the wake of apartheid. He uses puppetry, works for theater and makes films, all of which are based on his unique charcoal drawings. The first retrospective of his work is currently at the Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC.
