Mondli Kunene

The Soweto-born visual artist wants to use his paintings to foster social change.

Mondli did not allow a lack of formal training in the arts to stop him from pursuing his dream of becoming an artist. Referring to himself as an artivist, he started his own company, MONDLIART® through which he creates and promotes his work.

His ultimate goal is to use art to lead to social change and help to address social issues that affect people on the African continent. So far, besides the paintings that he creates, Mondli has also created two murals in Sharpeville.

In his view it is the combination of originality, patience and research that can make one into a great artist.
