Sifiso Mkhabela

Sifiso Mkhabela was born in Mbombela in 1991 before moving to Pretoria to pursue his art career in 2013 by completing his B-Tech degree in Fine and Applied Arts.

After graduating he went on and worked for Angus Taylor where he was a studio assistant.

Picking up the welder and the grinder was not just an artistic choice for him, it is a passion he connected with as a youngster that was fuelled by his father. His profession as a boiler maker exposed the young Mkhabela to metal working, which he quickly mastered.
