Khaya Witbooi was born in the Eastern Cape of South Africa and currently lives and works in Johannesburg. He coined the word “pap-art” – being “pap” the traditional poor staple food in Southern Africa – to define his personal approach to contemporary art as a self-taught artist. Interested in social critique and parody, he focuses on post-colonial and post-apartheid political tensions as well as on the paradoxes of consumerism and globalization, always conveying humor and sarcasm.
