Tshidzo Mangena

Tshidzo grew up in Hazyview, and now calls Johannesburg home. Tshidzo uses mainly charcoal, acrylic and oil. Using vibrant and unexpected colour combinations he creates works that are rich and emotive. His unique style speaks volumes and complements any space, creating an uplifting atmosphere.

The fun-loving father of three is adventurous and spiritual. He is passionate about people and social upliftment, an attribute that shows itself in his daily interactions with the people around him, and in his work that depicts the full range of human emotions. He is energised and moved by the landscapes, wildlife and aura of Africa. Tshidzo is also inspired by the beauty and the mystery of the African woman. Often his work reflects his love for jazz music and the grace and elegance of jazz instruments.
