Born in Soweto, South Africa (1974), Johannesburg based Daniel Stompie Selibe is an expressionist painter who amalgamates his musical and visual talent. Selibe improvises freely fluctuating between audio and visual elements to produce rhythmic outbursts of color onto the canvas, wood, and other substrates. Combinations of collage, abstract mark-making, and delicately placed textures typify his paintings. It is a creative process he purposefully deconstructs and reconstructs existing content to formulate a fresh perspective. Stompie is a proponent of embracing new outcomes derived from old patterns with celebrated success. He uses his influence and improvised paintings to shift communities and shape the world. Selibe’s artworks are widely exhibited and appear in many prominent collections.
