Afro-Pop Artist Diezel is a sculptor and a painter, who was born on a farm in South Africa, lived and sculpted in Kenya and now travels between studios in Johannesburg, South Africa and Sydney Australia. Diezel creates large artworks with an industrial pop art ‘feel’. Bold expressive brushstrokes, strong colours, symbols and writing are used to comment on historical issues, morality, beliefs and identity. Diezel often uses cultural and political themes in her works and makes statements on the complexities of a multi-cultural existence within African society. Diezel is an emerging artist who 'officially' started her art career with the Living Artist Emporium in 2009. As an emerging artist she has been part of many group exhibitions within South Africa between 2009 and 2012 as part of the LAE Artist Development. She became a member of the Superstroke Art Movement in South Africa in 2012 and has exhibited with members of this Movement in a variety of exhibitions in South Africa and Nabouring countries. Since 2014 Diezel has exhibited internationally and has established another studio in Sydney Australia. Diezel has had numerous solo exhibitions in South Africa and Australia since 2015 and her works are now part of many international collections including Singapore, Hong Kong, London, New York, Los Angeles, Munich, amongst others.
