Artist Statement
I am Mbovu Malinga, born in Free State (South Africa) and currently residing in Cape Town.

As an artist, I believe in humanity, not that the equality of people is determined by their worth economically: the unbalanced life where minority is worth billions and majority not even a rand. Economics, relgion, culture, race and sex still separate us to a point where we view each other as statistics instead of human beings.

Through my work I create awareness among our people that all systems that govern us should never make us ignore the realities around us. I make us of my artistic voice to challenge the injustice of these systems, to bring about change.
