Samkelo Matomela

Samkelo Matomela (b. 1996) is an Artist Proof Studio student, currently in his second year. One encounters a butterfly motif throughout his works, as a symbol which recognises, changes, and conquers circumstance -morphing into the better as he wishes for the people and communities that he interacts with.

The butterfly represents hope and a further assertion that we don’t have to forever be at the mercy of the sordid and inequitable political, social, and economical conditions.
