“I only noticed that I was good at the age of 7”: Thandeka Mahlangu


Thandeka Mahlangu was born and raised in KwaNdebele, at Kwamhlanga in the early 90s. She has been drawing from a very young age, the inspiration behind her art passion springs from her late grandma, who was also a great artist. She inherited her grandmother’s art wisdom, then incorporated her own unique artistic expression, style, and feel.

“I only noticed that I was good at the age of 7 when I was competing on the same level as the boys in my class. Drawing kept me out of trouble a lot since my parents were very strict, so this was my safe place to be. Never really had friends growing up so I used to draw cartoons a lot, then I went to college and studied Art and Design to pursue my love for art and I am now doing Art full time.” Said Thandeka M Art.
