Simangaliso Sibiya (b. 1986) is an artist who lives and works in Johannesburg, South Africa. He graduated in 2016 as a printmaker from Funda Community College (formerly known as Funda Centre.) He mainly works in printmaking, a medium which he deploys to address current cultural, political and social issues within the context of his own community of Soweto in particular, and of South Africa in general. Often taking his own biography as a point of departure, Sibiya aims to question the ways in which power dynamics unfold in the daily lives of people who live within marginalized suburbs like Soweto. As a contemporary artist and curator, Simangaliso has a keen interest in African Art. As a creative and social entrepreneur he has pioneered a range of initiatives that seek to address certain issues he is passionate about, while also introducing innovative ways of engaging with visual art. In 2016 he embarked on a street art project called Stop Nonsense a project that sought to fight drug and substance abuse in the community through murals.
