Azael Langa

My name is Azael Langa; I grew up in an artistic family, At first I did not adhere to being an artist until I won my first art competition in grade 6. After my primary years I went to an art High school and it was there where I realized that, that was exactly what I wanted to be – an artist.  Artists’ statement : To me art is not a day job or career, but it is a lifestyle. My art is about socio-political activism and going about the subject I show the exploitation of the average joe; the corruption of the elite and bringing to the surface that which is of sight like they say “out of sight out of mind” it is also about taking the intangible events, circumstances and becoming a mediator to the public.
