Having recently finished my post graduate degree in Visual Communication, I was able to look at myself as a queer entity and use this as reference for my work. South Africa has a somewhat blurry queer history, my process includes deep diving into our queer history and using this as an inspiration for creating original works.
As a multi-media artist, I was attracted to cinema because of it’s vast possibilities and mixtures of different art forms. With a fine art background, I went on to study all aspects of film from writing to cinematography to animation. I believe that every story has already been told, but it is how we tell it that makes it an original.
