Crisco BL

My name is Sabelo Crisco Dlamini better known as Crisco BL. I’m an illustrator based in Durban. I’ve been illustrating for about a year & unlike other digital illustrators, I use my phone instead of a laptop to create my paintings.
My art is based on Depression, Anxiety & Anti Self Harm. The reason as to why I base my illustrations around these things is because I don’t think they are spoken of as much as they should be nor are they taken seriously. My illustrations or a form of self-reflection, things that I’ve gone through myself. I feel that in doing this, people can relate to my art as much as I do. 
A lot of teenagers these days go through the above mentioned and don’t have the platform to talk about it or express it. I want to make art that makes people feel like they’re not alone and that there are ways to deal with their pain.

Milli Potent

As a creative, it is my responsibility to be aware of and analyze how people digest visuals. I believe that we're in a period of seeking nostalgia in art, and I strive to reflect that concept in what I create. My name is Ditiro (aka Potent), a professional Graphic Designer and Photographer from Johannesburg, South Africa.

As a multi-disciplined creative, I'm inspired by my dreams, life experiences and my surroundings. I usually find my self staring at a scene and wonder how I could artistically re-create that to evoke thoughts and discussion. I'm movitated by amazing work by other artists around the world, but still feel the need to do it "Potent style". My style is a bridge between minimal and abstract. The same could be said for my fashion sense. Just add a bit of street and hip hop.

While we're at hip hop, I've recently started a music movement and event called Trap Society. It is a boat for trap/hiphop and experimental fanatics to connect and engage under really good tunes. All of this is brought to you by Dirty Republik and Synergy Creative Team (do check them out on Facebook).

My goal is to become a major creative influencer, gliding across fields of music, fashion and entertainment. The competition in the city of gold is tough, but there's always room for fresh and unique ideas. Breathe, endure, and all should be fine.
