My work is only inspired by local scenes from Soweto, South Africa, which has a rich history of migrant labour. I use a lot of colour because I believe colour is like a spice of life.

Latest incubation popped into a manifestation of confusion without social cohesion,

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is this artwork original? How is it framed?
Under "TECHNIQUE" column above, if it says Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, or Fabric then yes, this is authentic, original, one-of-the-kind artwork delivered to us directly by the artist and stretched & framed in California. If it says "Print", then this is a very accurate reproduction of the original work.
Every work is ready to be hung and, in most cases, framed. See under "FRAMING" column above. One of the photos of the artwork is always with a frame. We try to pick the best frame for each work, see our framing guide for details.
