Mookho Ntho

Beginning her journey as an artistically inclined child, in Maseru, Lesotho, her creative expression was influenced by desire to be visible in the art word. Growing up she did not feel represented enough as a black person in art, to remedy that she uses art to make sure that black people are visible. She produces African contemporary art using oil paints with focus on portraits and close-ups. Her work is inspired by nature, emotions and feelings she experiences around her. Her art allows her to relive moments, create moments she has not experienced, and to express herself when she doesn’t have the words to.

Though her initial entry into the art world at a young age was in fashion illustration, as she grew up, she was exposed to different forms of self-expression, mediums, and art movements. Her early works focused on social activism shedding light on issues such as poaching, famine, and self-esteem. Currently her works represent the perfect union of her love for both fashion and art. She uses fashion to blur gender identities of the subjects in her painting.

Her artistic motto is: “Create with intent.”
