My name is Buhle Nkalashe, I was born in 1994 in Cape Town to a high school teacher and a carpenter. I was born at the turning point of South Africa becoming a New Democracy.
REAWAKENING : In this exhibition I will show what it means to me to be a New African in my own eyes, with regards to opportunity and diversity, and how I celebrate inspirational South Africans. I mainly want to focus on South Africa and how the younger generation of today are making headlines and a name for themselves, as well as celebrating their skin colour, traditions and culture.
AUTHENTIC : This body of work is influenced by young African creatives in Africa, and focuses on how contemporary African culture and design has evolved over the years. The vision for Authentic is about appreciating and depicting the growth of young African entrepreneurs and creatives. The healing and change of the old colonised African mindset is what drives Nkalashe to
paint and be inspired by the youth of today.
