Kealeboga Tlalang
Kealeboga Tlalang is South African artist specializing in cutting-edge collage portraitures, figures and sculptures. Analytical by nature, Tlalang uses collage which he links to puzzle play as a way of synthesizing his love for solving problems. Tlalang's self-professed focus is on social and economic issues back in his village. Art is a universal language and by creating is more like sharing stories affecting youth with intend to build a better future for the next generation. The colourful portraits and figures speak to the vibrancy of people, with all their fascinating colour and movement, and are more eye-catching than their textual fragmented background (perhaps representative of the world and all its background noise?). Tlalang's artworks look digitally produced because each larger-than-life human he depicts is made up of tiny squares and rectangles of colour, their hair matte black and their expressions brimming with realism. In real life, however, it`s striking to discover that each artwork is actually mostly made up of small pieces of paper, layered with a striking precision that creates a subtle effect. When looking at them close up, each work is a rainbow, full of texture. Take several steps back and each work is glossy with rich shadows and highlights, smooth contours.
