Born in South Africa in 1987, Themba Given Msiza is a self-taught artist who learned a lot of his trade through his work at The Pretoria Art Museum. "In my abstract art, I simply try to achieve beauty through the combination of different colours. I have decided to work with a number of different colours, though which I try to convey a certain message, like the artworks I produced for the exhibition at the St'lorient art gallery in Pretoria titled "The Gray Landscape." These older artworks of a similar style were exhibited at the Pretoria art museum in 2013. I titled the artwork "Nations Amalgamation", that artwork, also using the multiple colours was observing or representing the coming of different African nationals into South Africa. Since my artworks try to comment on the issues of the foreign nationals that have come to our country and the treatment they receive from locals, despite this decision to remain in South Africa. My artworks reflects or holds up a mirror on how detached we are as South Africans from the rest of the Continent."
