Joined 18 months ago from South Africa
My name is Philemon Maloka, I consider myself confident. I believe my ability to create and communicate is intimately tied to my purpose in life although I am unsure of exactly how.
Primarily I am an article writer and visual artist. I do not think of myself as an entertainer. I am interested in expression and communication through writing and art in a variety of different forms. I’m sure that I’m not the only one.
I was born and raised in Sharpville, South Africa. I grew up around ideas, information, education and art. I hope my entire life will be immersed in this kind of creativity.
Writing and art is the creative expression of our humanity. Art and music instigate larger conversations. I believe music is the greatest communicator because most if not all of us listen to it in one form or another. While some may never go to an art gallery or see a theatre production the majority of us listen to and appreciate a musical form of some kind.
I believe in community and community building. My creative life extends to my work in community development, specifically with arts-based projects for young people. From painting murals in downtown neighbourhoods in Soweto, to volunteering with youth art projects in South Africa . That side of my life has always run parallel to my artistic life and reminds me of the importance of expression, inspiration and opportunity.
My desire is to put my thoughts and experiences into the world so that I may enter into a larger conversation with people in different places. I am an artist who wants to continue to be creative and support others in being creative while finding my purpose.
