African Art Isishweshwe Mask by Siwa Mgoboza

Siwa Mgoboza is a South African-born artist who is stirring up a storm by using Isishweshwe material to create pieces that explore the notions of African identity expression and aims to create a blueprint for the future. This material is worn by the Hlubi people, the culture to which Mgoboza belongs. This Africa art showcases the beauty that these Hlubi women exude when wearing Isishweshwe. It also subverts the traditional method of wearing the garb by using it for nail art and as a mask. Share this work for the whole world to experience it.
