Theko Boshomane

Theko Boshomane was born in Polokwane, Limpopo in 1989. Fascinated by the notion of creating art that is poetic, Boshomane opted to take up a degree in Fine Arts at The Tshwane University of Technology. After completing his B-tech in Fine Arts in 2012, Boshomane created artworks that were a representation of the pain of childhood experiences of being bullied. He explores the influence of those formative years in the way he finds himself interacting socially, spiritually, and emotionally in his adult years.


His work has evolved into a self-healing process, which is an artistic exchange of hope between the artist and those who engage with the work.

Theko has since participated in several exhibitions with galleries such as the Absa Art Gallery, Everard Read and the Pretoria Art Museum, Goethe Institute and Oatskiop in the USA, California. In 2013, he entered the Absa L’Atelier art competition in which he exhibited as a top 100 artist finalist. In the same year, Theko was awarded the Sasol New Signatures art competition merit award.


Theko currently resides in Johannesburg where he creates and exhibits his art ranging from drawings and paintings to printmaking,  videos and installation.
