A young man has shared the inspirational story of how he managed to turn his private bedroom into an Art Studio. Driven by his passion for art and his determination to uplift his community, Sakumzi Nyendwana decided to take the leap and give up his personal space or a good cause.
Starting with his brother, Msindisi Nyendwana as his first art student, the two quickly turned the place into a wondrous showroom, filling it with art pieces that educated youngsters in the community on the countries rich background.
It also became a beautiful place to visit for those in the community who had an interest in art but no money to visit expensive art museums and art studios. Making use of recycled things found at scrapyards and dump sites, the brothers lit up their little art studio.
All the work they put into it did not go unnoticed. Soon the place was receiving guests from all over the world. The brothers also received multiple awards for not only their artwork but also for their efforts in putting their township on the map.
"Because of the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, we had to postpone social projects, upcoming events and trips to Europe and Asia. Unfortunately we were not able to hold those obligations. But through inspiration from people like *Siya kolisi* who are busy helping out the less fortunate during this pandemic, said Sakumzi
"We created this artwork and titled 'love and light'' just to bring hope to our fellow South Africans to stay strong during these challenging times because we champions and nothing can bring us down."
