Artist: Lhola Amira

In honour of women’s month, we’re taking a look at the artists whose work explores the feminine body in all its representations.

There still exists an often misunderstood socio-political tension when it comes to visibility for female artists. It is very much about design and art but there is meaning beyond aesthetic practices, more significantly for women of colour in the field.

With unique techniques and an effortless mastering of their various mediums, these women educate and create a relatable awareness about issues that affect women both in South Africa and the globe, transcending words and culture through powerful visual motifs.
