ExtraImaginary: Mosoti, can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background in art?

Mosoti Kepha: Actually I’ve been interested in art since I was a young boy – thirteen years old in primary school … that was in 1993. That’s when I noticed that I’m good at figure drawing, nature drawing and landscapes. So my primary teacher noticed that I had that talent and she encouraged me to go on with it. So in 1996 when I joined high school, I was lucky to take art as a subject that is drawing and painting and fine art in general. I did it for four years until 1999 when I finished high school. My high school teacher also noticed that I am a briliant artist and I can do better If I took my talent more seriously. So when I finished high school, I joined Buru Buru Institute of Fine Arts. That was in 2000 until 2003. After college, I decided to take art as my professional career and in 2005 that is when I joined the art scene officialy. Actually it is a good thing and I’m glad I chose that.
