Andiswa Mkosi is a multidisciplinary artist born in Cape Town. She uses art to reflect and interpret life as it exists both outside and behind her eyes. Her photography is an extension of this reflexive exploration of the world around her; a way of understanding her own lived experience as a black queer woman from the township, and presents these observations with startling sincerity.
She holds contemporary society up to the light to see where the holes are, investigating the chaos. Making her work honest, graceful and raw in equal measures.
Mkosi has exhibited alongside award winning photographer Neo Ntsoma a result of a week long workshop in Cape Town. The group exhibition titled Inequality: A different Picture, has been shown both in Cape Town’s Company Gardens and Johannesburg’s Constitutional Hill during Human Rights Day. At the moment Andiswa is a student at The Market Photo Workshop doing a course in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography.
