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.

Innocent Kgothatso Moreku

My name is Innocent Kgothatso Moreku. I am one of South Africa's most influential fashion icons and the Founder of Chilling With The Creatives. 

After being bitten by a fashion bug at a very young age, I was determined to see myself one day as the top stylist and creative in South Africa. 

I take a lot of my inspiration from African and Eastern culture and combine them with rebellious forms of fashion that I like to mix and mismatch clothing that question the notion of good Taste. My style is an artistic conversation between what is whithin and the outside world. 

With an urge not fit in with the crowded I had to find a way to stay unique with my style. Wearing the same as everyone just felt like being stuck in a football match where everyone dresses the same. 

My design style is a perceptual state of metamorphosis due to my intense curiosity and wilde urge to experience. It is a dream of mine to dress one hundred years older eccentric socialite and I am always so inspired by how I am able to create perceptions of good Taste. 

I have an art Exhibition that is based in Pretoria, shoshanguve called Chilling With The Creatives. It is a platform for creatives to gain recognition and get their brands out there to trade and learn from others within the creative filed. 

The aim of the art movement is to close the gap between art events in pretoria's township as it the capital city of the state. 

My signature conceptual label is Barbarian and my social media handles are:
