Doung Anwar Jahangeer
Doung Anwar Jahangeer (b 1976, Mauritius) is an artist and architect based in Durban, South Africa.
After studying architecture at the University of Natal, he worked on the restoration of listed buildings in London before turning his attention to conceptual art. His work has expanded to include multiple disciplines – video, sculpture, performance, painting and installation.
Jahangeer’s artistic creations are often linked by their focus on marginalised groups in society. In 2009, his design of a mobile shop for street vendors received the South African Design Indaba. He played a significant role in the “Streetlights” project in 2004, aimed at encouraging street children to create art in the public spaces of Johannesburg.
He is the co-founder of Dala, an arts consulting group for “creative and artistic experimentations”.
