Nika Mtwana is a painter living and working in Johannesburg, South Africa. He was born in Tsolo, Eastern Cape in 1991. He became interested in visual art after watching a drawing tutorial television show as a child, and began honing his skills at the tender age of 7. Believing that practice makes perfect, he tries to draw and paint every day.

After completing an Art and Design course at the College of Cape Town in 2014, he moved to Johannesburg where he decided to focus on and improve his drawing skills, it is also during this time that he started doing commissions.

In 2016 his love for visual art drove him to register his own company and is currently running a small business that offers custom artwork. He is currently working towards getting more exposure by means of partaking in gallery exhibitions and sharing his work on social media.
