Featured Artist
Nhlonipho Mchunu

Nhlonipho was born in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, in the heart of the Zulu kingdom. From an early age, he demonstrated an innate artistic talent that drove him to explore the art of his cultural roots and to reimagine it for the modern world. In 2015 he began studying art at the Durban University of Technology where he won the most creative artist award at Derby Res in his first year.

In 2018, he was the semi-finalist in a poetry competition at the university Writing Centre. During this time of the study, he made the breakthrough that enabled him to create portraits composed entirely of triangles. After obtaining his Diploma in Graphic Design and Visual Communication, Nhlonipho moved back to Pietermaritzburg, where he currently resides. in 2023, he self-published his first art book. His art uses sacred geometry to portray what is beyond all lines, shapes and forms – the joys and sorrows of life, the struggle of the artist, the search for the divine and the power of archetype and myth.
