Soweto born Fhatuwani Mukheli is a multi-disciplined creative who found his passion for art at the age of seven. The spark for art started when he saw his father paint a portrait of him and his twin brother when they were children. Muhkeli is also a co-founder of ‘I SEE A DIFFERENT YOU’ – a production company which has been in existence for 10 years.
The company has produced and collaborated with major brands including but not limited to Diesel, Scottish Leader Whisky, Scotch & Soda, Superdry, Standard Bank, and SA Tourism. He has exhibited both locally and globally, most notably at one of the oldest art fairs in the world, – The Venice Biennale
through the ITSLIQUIDE group in Italy. He has done a solo show in Cape Town with Kindred Gallery at the Pink Room in The Gorgeous George Hotel.
Fhatuwani is an influential figure in the social media public space and is currently an ambassador for a French cognac brand, Courvoisier. The work he creates is an ode to how he was raised by his mother,
hence the relationship between parent and child is one of his main focus points. He is also passionate about healing people through the medium of visual arts and believes that art is therapeutic not only for him but for those who also experience his art. His main medium is acrylic paint, charcoal, fine liner,
and spray paint.
