Simthandile Lisakhanya Witbooi
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, colours, 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.
She is currently doing a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Cape Town with majors in Psychology, Philosophy and Literature which she feels add insights into her artistic work and practice. She balances this alongside her budding art career.
