Simthandile Lisakhanya Witbooi is a Cape Town based mixed media artist and writer. She predominantly does portraits depicting people of colour in a contemporary and aesthetic light. She visually captures each individual’s unique essence and style through a variety of textures, images, colors, collages and other forms of materiality that are interwoven to form the artwork. Her body of work aims to be a reflection of the eclectic and diverse identity of people of colour.

She also experiments with other styles, media and ideas through separate collections, series and works.
