Major Ndlovu was born in 1989 at Umbumbulu on the KZN South Coast, South Africa.
He studied at The Bat Centre in their one year Visual Art Programme and attended Velobala Art Classes at The Durban University of Technology, hosted by The African Art Centre.
Ndlovu is a member of the Amasosha Art Movement, a collective of young Durban artists that promotes hard work and solidarity amongst artists. He is a multimedia artist who uses various mediums printing to express his concepts including coffee wash, mono printing, charcoal drawing, and woodcut printing.
His work questions the personal freedom of people in his community in their daily duties. He looks at the positives and negatives of neglected chores; “I grew up in a community where everyone is busy trying to maintain life, in the morning and afternoon they’re busy in several ways. That makes me wonder, as we live in a free country, whether we feel this freedom as individuals”.
