Ras Silas Motse

Ras Silas Motse is a mixed media/ Street artist who works with a concept of capturing feelings to narrate contemporary concepts using different people with normal township scenery/imagery and beyond. He has been working to understand himself due to his calling (Which in his words is Art). He loves and believe that his work is spiritual because of his dreams and images that he sees, which eventually invite him to be in the right space and time. His calling was born and bred as a cartoonist from a young age from a primary level in Thaba Nchu, a small isolated town called Motlatla. When Ras left high school, he went to study Fine Arts and a PGCE at the Central University of Technology in Bloemfontein. Then went on to work as a high school educator and is now a Forensic Analyst (Facial Identification) and a part time artist who is currently based in Western Cape, Cape Town, South Africa.
