Drive by Themba Khumal.
Themba Khumalo was born and raised in Orange Farm, South of Johannesburg. The mural and fine artist has always had an affinity for art. His creative journey began in childhood. “My love for art started at primary level of schooling when I used to draw my comic heroes. In high school I started to research more about art and art history, focusing on the township. I made the decision that I wanted to do art as a career after my matric year.”
Achieving a bursary to study a course in professional printmaking development at The Artist Proof Studio put his plan into motion. Today he is on a residency at August House in Doornfontein, where he creates emotionally-charged charcoal drawings and paintings. “I live a simple life. I live and breath art. I produce artwork everyday,” he shares.
