Joseph Manana was born in Escourt, KwaZulu-Natal in 1964. He has been working as an artist since the mid 1980s and is largely self-taught.

A few years ago he received an award from the Tito Zungu Trust Fund, created in the name of the late artist Tito Zungu which provides subsidies to South Africans wishing to study art. Manana enrolled at the Durban Institute of Technology for a diploma in Fine Arts, which he completed in 2003.  Prior to this, he exhibited in group exhibitions nationally and internationally.

He has also participated in art residencies including one at the Caversham Press, Howick, with master printer Malcolm Christian, and travelled to Europe and America to participate in workshops and mural painting projects.  In Durban he has worked with Community Mural Projects and his art can be seen on various walls in the city.
