Buhle Nkalashe


Buhle Nkalashe (b. 1994) is a full-time visual artist based in Cape Town, South Africa.
He is interested in his African cultural heritage, the visual elements associated with it and how it is evolving in response to a developing and changing world.
“The healing and change of the old colonised African mindset is what drives me to paint.”
Nkalashe works with paint and mixed media – a combination of charcoal, acrylic paint, oil paint and oil pastels. His paintings generally reflect on the influence of culture on society and he enjoys exploring traditional patterns and its contribution to more contemporary versions of cultural expression.
He has had two solo exhibitions at the Youngblood Africa Gallery in Cape Town and was shortlisted for the Sanlam Portrait awards in 2017.
