David Hlongwane completed a four-year course at the Academia di Belle Arte in Perugia in 1991. Today he teaches art to the juveniles in prisons with an empathy born of his own incarceration as a result of his activities in the struggle.

David Hlongwane was born in 1963 in Zwelethemba Township in Worcester. He completed his high school education at Vuyisile High School in Worcester and joined the Community Arts Project in 1984.When his brother, who had been supporting him, was killed, he had to give up his studies. He was arrested several times during the Apartheid era. While in prison he had time to explore his artistic talent. With the support of the Italian Government, David Hlongwane was offered a full grant in 1988 to study art for a year in Perugia, a small town near Florence.

His art found expression in many posters, banners and pamphlets, as well as in his sculptures and paintings. The artist is well known in South Africa where he was the winner of the 1995 Mayibuye Center Sculpture Competition. His work has also been well received in the United States of America, Italy and Germany.
