Lesego Seketsa



‘Lesego’s work aims to question postmodernity, as well as reflect its realities in present African life.’



Lesego Seoketsa is a multidisciplinary artist focusing mostly on visual art and its exploration. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion degree, and is a self-taught photographer and visual artist. Her practice consists mainly of photography, collage and painting. She uses a variety of media such as digital, acrylic paint, oil paint, charcoal and chalk pastel.
In photography, Lesego focuses on portraiture and extends this practice to painting by collaging photographs with painted pieces. She thus takes a contemporary approach by mixing traditional and non-traditional media. Her work speak on post-postmodernism and how this school of thought plays out in her life as a South African in the post- apartheid era. She draws influence from Western traditional artists as means to further distinguish the visual language of Southern African art. Her work aims to question postmodernity, as well as reflect its realities in present African life. Lesego has shown some of her work in a group exhibition at the Gerard Sekoto Art Gallery with the Alliance Francaise. The exhibition was curated by Soraya
Karimi in 2017 – titled Sibyllines. Her work and persona have been featured in
publications such as Bubblegumclub, Vogue, Sunday Times, Unlabeled Magazine, Faculty Press by Thebe Magugu, WePresent by WeTransfer and Glamour Magazine.
