Skumbuzo Vabaza, known as ‘Skubalisto’, is a visual artist based in Cape Town, South Africa. Skubalisto was born in Harare, Zimbabwe (1987), where his parents had spent their twenties in political exile. Stemming from a background in street art, Skubalisto primarily creates portraits in a contemporary expressionist style, both as murals and canvas paintings. His mediums range from spray paint, acrylic, oil pastel, charcoal to ink. His works, punctuated with social consciousness, are a collection of ideas and stories, serving as visual diaries for the state of the world at the time of their creation. “I am not a writer; painting is my weapon of choice. The makings of a true artist lie in the fact that an individual can create no matter what medium they use.” - Skubalisto
