Siyanda Quma inspiring artist


The inspiring story of Siyada Quma.

Siyanda Quma what an inspiring artist.

Siyanda has a natural talent, through had work and dedication and the believe “pursue your dreams’’ he has inspired many at St Matthews High School. Sifunda Kunye educational project facilitator Sanga Mabulu that is full time at St Matthews has guided and encouraged this young man.

Siyanda is an artist striving for success, his raw talent is pleasant. Siyanda has a talent as a artist and expresses himself though is drawings.

He hopes his art will take him places. Siyanda is quiet and pleasant person, and he hopes his art will speak to many.

If you look at art though drawings, the feeling of escaping reality and receiving a message though the eyes of the artist.

Siyanda decided to share one of his drawings with us, which is based on colorism.

The artist said, ” The drawing is based on the disease of vitiligo and it has a black person that has this disease , but I want to express it based on colorism. We’re basically talking about colorist painting characterized using intense color which becomes the dominant feature of the resultant work of art, more important than its other qualities. ”

Many that learnt from Siyanda’s paintings said about the story behind the drawing was that art can be expressed in different types of ways which seems to be interesting and so cliché in a way.  Art is art and it is meant to be expressed. Well done to Siyanda for inspiring us all by showing how talented our pupils are any child can be so talented in a miraculous way.


Let us actualize our aspirations, let’s follow and pursue our dreams.
