Mthiyane Slomo

 

slomo.jpgMfundo Slomo Mthiyane was born on the 25th of September in 1991 in Durban in a township called Kwadabeka currently based in Johannesburg, Mfundo Slomo Mthiyane studied at CFAD (Centre For Fine Art, Animation and Design) college for his multimedia diploma. He has worked in design studios and advertising agencies in Johannesburg. He has exhibited in two group exhibitions held by African Art Centre, the first one he was in was in 2012 called Spaces and Places. Second group exhibition he was featured in 2014 was called Emerging Artists. In my artwork I try to capture warm moments between people however currently I'm trying to capture chaos and order with figures in spaces; chaos representing the struggles we as humans go through. These figures may look obscure and distorted however their fragility as human beings makes the artwork aesthetically pleasing.
