Dolla Sapeta talks about how his everyday surroundings plays a vital role in formulating & the execution of his work.
DOLLA SAPETA was born in 1967, in New Brighton, Gqeberha. Sapeta employs colour, form, and composition to portray an emotional environment rather than the physical one. “My subject-matter is an effort to mirror South African urban realities by depicting myself first as an accomplice and other individuals who exists in this time in this society. The work generally takes refuge in human condition, its truth is arranged from my point of view, this also gives me the opportunity to manipulate the situation and present it in an extremely decontextualized arrangement. 22
