Justice Mathonsi was born in 1987 in Soweto and moved to Ribugwani in Venda in 1990.
Mathonsi studied printmaking at Artist Proof Studio and specialised in lino reduction. He is currently working as a full-time artist and print maker.
He said: “My body of work pays tribute and homage to the many women who raised me. I grew up in a rural area called Ribugwani in Limpopo. My parents were not present in my life, and I was raised by the older woman in my community who became my grandmothers. Under their guidance they taught me about Tsonga values and culture and how to be a man.”
