Phumzile Buthelezi

Multimedia Artist


Phumzile invokes women and feminine energy as her muse; the sense of being associated and connected with nature and simultaneously being a critical site in cultural production. She is particularly interested in the change of practicing agency through the driving force of social, political and cultural aspects. The body of her work is a physical extension of philosophy and cultural changes that have made the modern woman a multifaceted being, a bringing together of many different qualities and textures, which she demonstrates through the use of different mediums and technical skills. Her style is easily distinguishable, with organic forms and shapes and a colorful palette.

Phumzile, a national of South Africa, has always had an affinity for art, starting from an age as young as 13 years. Throughout her developing stages as an artist her craft has included embroidery, crocheting, knitting, bead-work, and fabric painting.

- 2020 at Ellis House Open Studio in Johannesburg, South Africa
- 2020 at Mmarthouse Ambiguous- Group Show in Johannesburg, South Africa
