Dbongz Mahlathi is a street artist from the West of

Johannesburg. He started participating in street art in 2008

when he first came to the city to pursue his tertiary

education. He fell in love with the freedom it afforded him,

the colours, the huge canvases in a form of walls, the

confidence it instilled in him and the ability to spread

conceptual messages to the masses.

Growing up he’d always been attracted to the naturally

colourful and vibrant features of the world, but having come

up in a township, all one is surrounded by is a setting of

mundane landscapes and uninformed opinions, which is

really uninspiring to say the least.

He continues to say, “It'd be great to be able to communicate

through art what language can’t, to have the ability to

interpret the years of pursuit into positively influential

artworks that resonate with everyday lives, and to forever

vibrate mundane spaces, to encourage ongoing optimism in

young minds, to boost confidence and eradicate doubt and

fear in human brains and inspire patience and persistence,

and it is happening, one artwork at a time.”
