Justice Mukheli

South African 1985- 

Justice Mukheli, a South African artist, filmmaker, and photographer, draws inspiration from his Soweto upbringing. His artwork delves into themes like masculinity, blackness, ancestry, and spirituality. Mukheli's process is swift, creating captivating compositions that blur the lines between contemporary portraits and abstraction, challenging conventional notions of portraiture and African identity. He aims to reconnect with an African past untouched by colonization and Christianity, emphasizing spirituality. His paintings convey a sense of ancestral presence, often appearing ghostly amid a riot of marks. Mukheli's art offers a meditative journey to connect with the past, prioritizing experience and emotion over documentation and portrays figures free from the constraints of masculinity and identity, embodying a fluid, genderless spirit reflective of modern complexities.
