Moses Sibiya - Mthwalo wami

As an artist, my life experiences have a significant impact on my work. Our own experiences, relationships, and observations, in my opinion, help to mold our viewpoints and serve as a major source of inspiration. I want to convey the essence of human existence via my work by exploring the depths of our emotions, our memories, and the intricacies of the world we live in. My own experiences act as a source of inspiration, allowing me to produce sincere and thought-provoking works. Each experience, whether pleasant or difficult, leaves a permanent imprint on my artistic expression. My creative method incorporates my emotions, the tales I hear, and the cultural backgrounds I come across. I get inspiration from the intense sensory stimulation of live performances, the excitement of crowded places, and the subtleties of interpersonal interactions. The rich tapestry of life is reflected in my paintings. It captures the whole spectrum of human emotions, the precariousness of life, and the resilience of the human spirit. To invite viewers to discover resonance in their own life experiences, I want to create a sense of connection and empathy. I want to disprove stereotypes and promote conversation via my art. I want to arouse feelings, compel reflection, and raise queries about what it is to be human. I want to open up a space for thought, comprehension, and connection by sharing my personal experiences. My artist statement is based on the idea that our life experiences are crucial in forming our artistic expressions. They serve as the cornerstone of our artistic activities, bringing authenticity, depth, and a distinct worldview to our work.
