Mbali Mthethwa (b.1989) is an artist from Ekurhuleni east of Johannesburg. Since she was a little girl, she always loved drawing and making things, but never formalised it only did it as a hobby. After completing her secondary education, Mthethwa was accepted to go and study at AAA School of Advertising where she majored in Integrated Marketing Communication. After many years of suppressing her calling, Mthethwa finally decided to pursue her passion in art and craft through sketching and beading. Mbali’s artistry has no formal education and is guided by a deep spiritual connection with her ancestors. This expression seeks to honour and celebrate cultural traditions while sharing her journey of getting to know more about being an Urban Zulu Woman. Mbali Mthethwa is currently in her final year at the University of Johannesburg majoring in Community Development and Leadership, trying to find solutions to how art and craft can help empower disadvantaged communities Instagram @mbalimthethwanyambose https://bermancontemporary.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/BC-I-Artist-Portfolio-I-Mbali-Mthethwa-I-2020-.pdf
