Chrisél Attewell was born in 1994 in South Africa. She received her BA Fine Arts degree from the University of Pretoria in 2016 and now resides in Johannesburg. Hereafter she continued to showcase her work in multiple group shows around South Africa where her work has become part of various national and international collections. She works in a variety of mediums, which explores different ways in which energies, moments, memories and histories can be captured, documented and preserved. The work is very experimental in nature and often takes a performative approach to the process of making. In this, there are initial intentions, but there is an overlapping of uncontrolled processes. These processes ricochet off one another within her different mediums where a shared language emerges from the collective of her work.
