Sibusiso Robert Duma was born in Mbumbulu, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal where he currently still works and resides.
He started drawing with crayons and colour pencils from an early age.
Duma uses familiar iconography such as the human figure and rural landscape in his narratives, serving as his analysis of the rural environment through the use of humour and satire; helping in the understanding of present social conditions.
The use of these personal iconography and metaphors harvested from everyday life manifests a fine balance between fantasy and reality. His work is typified by his treatment of the surface, subject matter, composition and the use of space and colour, which collectively create touches of mystery and intrigue.
