Buhle Nkalashe is a painter who incorporates mixed media like Oil & Acrylic paint, & Oil pastels. Nkalashe’s work mainly consists of portraiture and abstract paintings. Fascinated by the idea of how patterns and color can be a symbol of identity, Buhle’s art documents how African contemporary culture has evolved over the years to proudly incorporate traditional symbols that speak of its heritage.
I discovered Buhle’s talent in 2017 and since then followed and contributed to his career as full time artist. He created artworks for several group shows and art fairs, always with positive viewers responses. Clients in particular enjoy how he incorporates his subject matter of his surroundings with always a positive outlook and vision on Africa. I am looking forward to introducing more artworks by Buhle Nkalashe to my customers in future.

Buhle Nkalashe is an incredibly gifted, thoughtful and conscientious artist, who also showsconcern and engagement, for the reception and curation of the gallery’s entire show, notjust his own individual contribution. His professionalism is remarkable.

Buhle brings a lot to the table; technical ability, thought provoking narratives and a considered and professional approach. These are the right boxes to tick when investing in new talent.

My company Afrinova has been partnering with Buhle in marketing and introducing him to new investors, who love to collect his work. Because, he has continuously shown himself to be a humble and positive individual who is always keen to learn, and push his work to the next level. Buhle has proved to be consistent in everything he does and has also been extremely proactive.
