Welcome To My Website

My art is based on the everyday events of the Township and Rural areas we live and grew up in. The idea is to paint a single picture with multiple events, having vibrant colours and at the same time depict humor. The is a story to tell about every stone, plant, building and mountain so if you do not know township life,  I will recommend you learn the culture through acquiring one or more of my artworks.

 

My work has been relevant for almost 20 years and I will never fear the loss of relevance unless I have painted that all the “never ending” stories which happen in all townships across the country. Some of my work is inspired by simple conversations I have with the elderly and most of these stories are amusing. I trust that you will love the painting I am prepared to offer you.

What I Do

Artist - Paint

I am an Artist by profession and I specialize in Painted Art. Through Art I have recognition and exposure to the greater parts of South Africa and across the South African borders. My style of work is known as Township Art and I make use of bright colours to portray the active life of townships as well as rural areas.

Community Building

I am the founder of Siyabonga Community Art Project which is an initiative that provides training to young as well as elderly people in Arts and Craft. The aim of the project is not only to attract talent but also to shift the mindsets of the young from focusing on the negatives they might be seeing in their communities into being useful artistically

Art Teacher

Even though I do not as yet have a School of Art of my own but I do offer Art classes which I offer the general public. I give support for a vast range of Visual Arts & Craft and do not work alone but have a team of highly talented artists who have been in the industry for a long time. This is our bit to ensure that art lives on for generations to come

Visual Art

What Does Wiki Say?

The visual arts are art forms such as  ceramicsdrawingpaintingsculptureprintmakingdesigncraftsphotographyvideofilmmaking, and architecture. Many artistic disciplines (performing artsconceptual arttextile arts) involve aspects of the visual arts as well as arts of other types. Also included within the visual arts[1] are the applied arts[2] such as industrial designgraphic designfashion designinterior design and decorative art.[3]

 

Current usage of the term “visual arts” includes fine art as well as the applied, decorative arts and crafts, but this was not always the case. Before the Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain and elsewhere at the turn of the 20th century, the term ‘artist’ was often restricted to a person working in the fine arts (such as painting, sculpture, or printmaking) and not the handicraft, craft, or applied art media. The distinction was emphasized by artists of the Arts and Crafts Movement, who valued vernacular art forms as much as high forms.[4] Art schools made a distinction between the fine arts and the crafts, maintaining that a craftsperson could not be considered a practitioner of the arts.
