His work invites the audience to pause and appreciate the beauty found in simpler times while exposing the fluidity of memory and perception. Through his lens, the artist transforms intangible emotions into tangible conversations, urging us to openly discuss mental well-being. Beyond psychology, his work celebrates the vitality of self-expression, emphasizing the power of creativity in understanding ourselves and others. The visual artist has participated in numerous exhibitions, with his work being featured in various countries, including India, the United States of America, Nigeria, and the United Kingdom. In 2020, he received the African Union and Afrochampions’ Nefertiti Arts Prize for his work that draws on themes of social change, justice, inclusion, equity, equality, struggle, and anti-oppression. source : https://zarastro.art/sinenkosi-msomi/
