Katlego Modiri is a South African artist specialising in printmaking. He is skilled in techniques such as intaglio, relief, etching, silkscreen and glass kiln work and focuses on combining those skills, bringing remarkably refreshing pieces to the art world.
Born in Pretoria in 1989, Katlego followed in his older brother’s footsteps by studying art. He graduated from Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) with a B-Tech Degree, majoring in Printmaking and Glass Works.
He is a full-time artist who explores the limitations of creating works using various techniques, although his preferred method is silkscreen.
He is influenced by his beautiful country, and says working as a South African artist is an enriching experience, being surrounded by the incredible people and place.
Katlego’s career has been a great success so far, and he has exhibited throughout South Africa since graduating in 2012.
His most recent solo exhibition, Erosion, was in June 2014, and he continues to exhibit in various galleries. He is also currently continuing with his art studies at UNISA.
