Sithole Lebohang was born in Johannesburg in 1989. After completing matric in 2008, Sithole attained his knowledge in print making at Artist Proof Studio in Johannesburg where he completed three years of training. Sithole comments that the process of creating artworks in the media in which he practices as a print maker has been a transformative and cathartic experience. There is a sense of happiness and nostalgia which carries through the various subject in his work. His use of bright colours and his extensive use of yellow has characterised his work and defined his style as a print maker. Sithole has managed to capture joy and movement in his art in a manner which is unique to his work.
