Zhi Zulu – Illustrator Profile

Meet one of a kind, awesome illustrator Zhi Zulu:

I am Zhi Zulu. I’m a 23-year-old, Gold craft Loerie award-winning illustrator from the beautiful city of Johannesburg.

I love to tell stories through illustration. I just completed a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Visual Communication at the Open Window Institute. I have worked previously as a graphic designer and illustrator. I am currently the sole-owner of a freelance illustration studio called Zuluvisual.

I make work that eludes to the investigation of my culture. I am a proud Zulu and I enjoy making contemporary visual representations of what I understand is relevant to current society. I have a clear vision of what impact I want to make through my art. Aside from enticing others to discover the rich uniqueness of their own culture, my goal is to influence the education sector by integrating my culture-inspired illustrations with the visual methods of teaching literacy South Africa.

A selection of her works is now available from our Bookstore at Arts on Main, Maboneng. Check out a few of her samples here!
