Siwaphiwe Madlingozi

ABOUT ME

Siwaphiwe was born in Port Elizabeth and later moved to Cape Town. In her early childhood she discovered her passion for the arts, and growing up in a fatherless home, so grew her passion for activism. 

Siwaphiwe is ambitious and aims at continuous growth and development as a multidisciplinary artist. Art lives through her and she prioritises its ability to communicate over words. 

Whilst her creativity began with music and fine art, it later expanded to include digital storytelling which birthed her focus on developing conceptual skills across mediums. This conceptual foundation is supported by technical skills in professional photography, video editing, curation and basic motion graphics.
