Thalente Khomo creates imaginative works that navigate between photography, performance and printmaking. Drawing on personal and cultural histories, her images give visual form to a world that is at once physical and spiritual, present and transcendent, contemporary and ancient. Khomo is a graduate of Durban University of Technology and a member of the Amasosha Art Movement. She has been exhibiting her work since 2016.
