All the paintings are painted by myself, Khosi Mnyakeni. My love for paintings stems from my appreciation of beautiful interiors and interior designs. In my view a house is not a home without paintings. I regard paintings as one of the important home accessories. A painting in a living space creates an atmosphere that expresses personality, taste and preference. I find paintings aesthetically pleasing and they are an efficient solution for a better use of space. Paintings are the perfect way to liven up an otherwise a dull space.
I have always wanted to make paintings but I did not have the guts. I would only appreciate them at galleries, in magazines, public and private spaces and on social media. I gathered mental courage and I remember saying to my husband on occasions that I was going to start painting. One day I just picked up the brush and the rest is history. I am self taught and work with acrylic on canvas. My paintings are abstract, non-objective representations. My work is inspired by palettes and emotions. They explores the joy and beauty of the visual experience. I use mostly bold colours in daring combinations.
