Baba Tjeko (Johannesburg, South Africa) is a non-conformist multidisciplinary Artist. As a poet, healer, and social activist, Tjeko uses the unspoken language. Tjeko seeks to communicate the innermost dimensions of our being to his audience. Tjeko’s work is spiritually deep, symbolic, and innocent. Tjeko is interested in challenging the man-made concept of social classes that categorizes people according to what they have and what they don’t have. His work promotes the philosophy of Ubuntu and human connectedness over ideologies that promote greed and self-centeredness. He completed his Creative Multimedia Diploma (majoring in Advertising Design) with the National Electronic Media Institute of South Africa (NEMISA) in 2007 and worked as a Graphic Designer for both the private and public sectors. He did freelance work as an illustrator and commentary cartoonist for various publications such as Move magazine, Sunday Sun, Caxton newspapers, Sunday Times, and others. Tjeko collaborated with Mini South Africa for the release of the African Limited edition Clubman, branded with his artwork. As part of Mini activations, Tjeko painted a large mural live at the first ArteBotanica 2019. He also worked on Channel O’s on-air new look, branded merchandise, and installations at DJ Black Coffee’s Music Is King concerts, Fact Durban Rocks, and AKA Orchestra On The Square.
