About Jackie Mwanza

I am a visual artist. In my current work, I utilise recycled drinks cans (coke, Fanta and beer cans) to create images that highlight parallel perspectives to social, political and existential norms. I also make sculptures from found objects and revel in the countless possibilities, beyond the mediums of paint and canvas with which art can be created.
