Mlangeni went viral in 2018 after he showed off a portrait he painted of DJ Black Coffee using Ricoffy.

Meanwhile, earlier we reported on another amazing and talented young artist. On social media, 20-year-old Sisanda Buthelezi has been wowing South Africans with her exceptional talent. The young artist posts snaps of the hyper-realistic pieces of art she completed - some she even shows off before they are completed.

Sisanda was born in KwaZulu-Natal but she relocated to Pretoria with her parents at the end of 2012. The talented young lady attended Potchestroom Girls' High School and she fell in love with art completely when she took visual arts as a subject in Grade 10.

The self-taught artist spoke to Briefly.co.za about her passion and the piece she is most proud of - a stunning portrait of Jacob Zuma.
