Mbongeni Richman Buthelezi has been working on and developing a unique of art making.Using discarded plastics of a certain quality in melting process, he paints in impastos solid forms burnt with a heat gun onto a thick, roofing-plastic surface. He has created a new form of paint, a so called plastic painting. His unique paintings are often larger than life. He is able to work realistically and abstractly, with the technique being extremely detailed. Born in Kwazulu-Natal and raised in Springs, Buthelezi has moulded these worlds together and tries to make sense of his rural upbringing with an urban existence in his work.
