Born: 1976 Lives: Cape Town, South Africa


Mhlongo’s love of art was kindled from a young age; he attended art classes throughout his schooling and furthered his studies at the Community Arts Project. His paintings articulate his life story – one of personal struggle, strong family ties and friendships. Mhlongo’s work also addresses societal problems prevalent in South Africa; problems exacerbated by politicians, corruption and abuse of power. Now practicing his art on a full-time basis, Mhlongo supplements his income by selling fruit and vegetables from his studio window.
