Thulasizwe Mbheli is a South African artist who comes from the small rural community of Shongweni which lies on the outskirts of Durban, about 25 minutes from the city centre. Mbheli is a follower of the Rusta faith, this is commonly demonstrated in his art work through his use of colour and symbolism. Mbheli’s work is also an expression of his Africanism, he utilizes natural elements and gives them a practical application, communicating the harmony found between Africa and nature. Mbheli hopes to share his African experience with the world as he establishes himself as a truly African artist.
