Born in 1979 in Mofolo, Soweto, his work orbits between art, design, architecture and poetry.
His latest art, which he defines as African Pop Art, is a kaleidoscope of colours offset with cubism of the works of famous artists like Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque.
He says although inspiration for his latest creations comes from African masks, he has also been influenced by famous artists such as Pablo Picasso.
His recent artworks spot colourful and larger-than-life eyes and long noses usually seen on African masks.
Nhlapo studied fine art at the Funda Arts Centre in Soweto and did a degree in arts in Switzerland. He completed several postgraduate courses at Artists Proof Studio in South Africa, Academy of Art in Germany and the Ecole Supreme Des Beaux Art in France.
