Odirile Khune Motsiri is a visual artist and fine art student making strides in the fine art world with his textured creations. He’ll be holding his first solo exhibition “Identity” on the 8th of April 2017. He consider himself a child at heart and never sets limitations to his imagination.
“What inspired me to become an artist was the longing to being able to do something I always had the desire to do full time. Creating was all I desired, either working on paper or digitally. It was not just for fun- art became more of a lifestyle than just a hobby. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learnt is that you have to be yourself in everything you do. It goes a long way especially in terms of owning your craft. There’s a sort of aura you harness and try to mature in the process of it all which ultimately gives you your unique style. Theres a quote that I like that goes, “He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist” St. Francis of Assisi. Having quoted that, I hope to meet other artists and probably share knowledge and ideas. Our community as fine artists needs to grow.” – Odirile Khune Mots’
