Aviwe Plaatjie was born in Cape Town on 19th June 1988. As a young boy he was drawn to art drawing and sketching anything and everything. This tendency was nurtured by his mother and her boss; they enrolled him in part-time art classes at Frank Joubert Art Center. After completing high school in 2008, he began participating in Art workshops and Mentorship programs with Vuyile Voyiya in 2011.

I work mainly with Linoleum cut and everything that is very much a drawing based medium. I very much like the way you can record an instant observation or doodle away your unconscious thoughts and ideas. In my artwork I document scenes I come across in day to day life. My inspiration comes from the world around me. I love absorbing my surroundings. I simply comment on life.
