Zapiro, a. k. a. Jonathan Shapiro, has drawn editorial
cartoons for some of South Africa’s most important
newspapers during the unique drama of the last days of
Apartheid and the birth of a democratic nation. He has
lampooned parties and personalities without favour. This
collection is a quirky chronicle of the years 1994 to 1996.
Zapiro’s cartoons are a national treasure. Frequently
discussed on radio and TV, they have provoked public comment
from politicians and are the source of such private delight
that many are to be found mounted in the offices of power.
Zapiro brings to cartooning a background of political
activism (which got him into trouble in the bad old days).
Now he keeps a vigilant pen on the new dispensation, which
sometimes entails knocking comrades he met in the trenches.
Awarded a Fulbright Scholarship, Zapiro studied Media Arts
at the School of Visual Arts in New York. His work appears
regularly in the `Mail & Guardian‘, `Sowetan‘ and the `Cape
Argus‘, and has appeared widely in other publications, both
local and international. He has had solo exhibitions in Cape
Twon and New York. He is married to photographer Karina
Turok and they have a son, Tevya.
