The artist entitled his first solo exhibit Fire!. announcing both the medium and subject of many of his works. For all of his canvases, including the 'Milkyway Galaxy' series, [Sandile] Zulu symbolically lists his materials as 'fire, water, air and earth', emphasizing the ritual and elemental nature of his work.
