 “My story life is inspired with the township life that i see and live every day. I depict and portray a scenario of women carrying bags on their heads, men going to work using bikes, kids playing, people waiting for the bus or taxi, standing in a line or socializing around the spaza-shops, with every brush mark helping me to tell my story with the use of big and familiar brands like Coke , Surf and so on.”
