ART for All, big and small.


DIEPKLOOF, Soweto  -    I met Thabang Selai in Braamfontein. He is the creator of a piece  of art displayed against a building in Melle street. I found the art piece interesting because I noticed the bright coloured  ‘name-board’ from across a n intersection.
On closer inspection I found that it was made of plastic bottle-tops.. It was bright and colorful.
Thanbang is based in Diepkloof, Soweto where he live with his family.
He inspires the children in his community to be creative and often hosts art classes around his house. The neighborhood children come to draw and be creative. They find a place to sit and draw. On paint cans and on the portch  in front of the house.
“They are so creative and have amazing imagination,” said Thabang. He doesn’t always have enough paper but he makes a plan. He often use his childrens’ crayons to give to those that come to his class.

To help Thabang with paper, pencils, crayons, color-pencils or any art supplies, please call him at 0730227476.
