About "off to town"
Was inspired by the sign language that is commonly used across South African township for public transport especially for taxis. Pointin up like my subjects in this painting simply means a person is going to town
I live in Mohlakeng (West of Johannesburg). I developed a love for art at an early age: I grew up in a community that did not have Fine Artists but sign writers; this inspired and encouraged me to become a Fine Artist. I started drawing under my grandmother's supervision (PBUH) whom could not draw or paint but she had ideas. After Matric, I studied Visual Arts at FUBA school of Dramatic and Visual Arts for a year, then studied Fine Arts at University of Johannesburg for 3yrs. Thereafter, I worked as a freelance mural painter travelling in and around Johannesburg - I painted private and corporate murals. I am inspired by creation of GOD/JAH,
