My intention while creating the portrait was to ask the question of and about beauty. In Xitsonga, 'ximatsatsa' is a person who is thought to be beautiful. We live in a time where one can modify their natural features to be palatable to the taste of what is considered to be a more “commercial” standard of beauty. While all of this is possible, we’re also existing in a time where other people choose to define beauty in ways that are more unique to them. I’ve deliberately simplified the portrait to minimum (the most necessary) features. This leaves room for the audience to decide whether or not they want to modify the face to their standard of beauty or if the portrait is beautiful as it exists.

This was a beautiful homecoming to my true self. I had momentarily abandoned my illustrations, questioning if this path truly belonged to me. However, a gentle voice within me urged me to reclaim my passion and purpose. And oh, how grateful I am that I heeded that call, for it led me back to where I truly belong.

In 'Project Salon' I present my unique interpretation of the fusion between South African political posters and the captivating art styles found in African barbershops. Through my work, I aim to intertwine these diverse influences, creating a visual narrative that speaks to the intersection of politics and artistic expression.
