I was born in 1993 at KwaSokhulu (eMbonambi) in KwaZulu Natal. I am currently studying Fine Arts at Durban University of Technology. I started to exhibit in 2015 for the Newage INK Expo at KwaMashu, ArtSpace group exhibition 2016 and ICC Essence Art Festival 2016. My work focuses on the social exclusion, and I work in different mediums from drawing, to water colour paints, printmaking and sculpture.
My work deals with the Social exclusion which is a multidimensional process of progressive social rupture. It detaches groups and individuals from social relations and institutions and prevents them from full participation in the normal, prescribed activities of the society in which they live.
Social exclusion I think, develops from social inequality whereby increasing unemployment, lack of affordable housing and social economic policies still continue to create a huge gap between rich and poor people.
In my work I question the assumptions around homeless people and look at how they lose their identity every day. I supplement this by showing how fragile poverty is and how it is problematic in society by focusing on figures and portraits of homeless people living in the city of Durban. The homeless people have few options for good life.
Please call for an appointment and I would love to show you my work.
