Sizwe Khoza was born in Mozambique towards the end of the Civil War and moved to South Africa with his family in 1995. He matriculated in 2010 from Nkumbulo Comprehensive School and during his matric year he attended Saturday classes at Artist Proof Studio. Thereafter, he studied printmaking for three years and graduated in 2012. In 2013 he was awarded a residency through Artist Proof Studio at William Humphrey Art Gallery (WHAG) in Kimberley under the mentorship of the late Dumisani Mabaso. Khoza was then offered an internship at Artist Proof Studio in 2014 as a facilitator in Printmaking for first and second year students attending full time and chose to be a full-time artist from 2016. Twice a year Khoza travels to Mozambique to take photographs and sketch people and upon return creates new works inspired by his visit home. Khoza specializes in painting, monotype and combined printmaking techniques. In 2017 he was commissioned by Rand Merchant Bank Holdings to create an artwork for their boardroom. He donates two artworks a year to auction initiatives that raise money for education and continues to have exhibitions and shows around the country.
