Talented Milton artist Thato Mwosa will be displaying her work this month in the Wotiz Gallery. Ms. Mwosa is a multifaceted artist who is the owner of Tuli Art, a business that specializes in ballerina illustrations. When she started decorating her daughter Tuli’s room, Thato wanted a ballerina-themed decor. After finding that black/brown ballerina art was scarce, Thato decided to make illustrations inspired by her daughter. The result is a truly remarkable array of ballerinas in different poses wearing bold and vibrant costumes. These ballerina silhouettes represent girls of any color. This is what she says about her work: “I believe in personalizing the ballerina illustrations as much as I can. My customers give me the name of their daughters/granddaughters/nieces, etc…and their favorite colors. After that the magic happens. Sometimes I even add a little bedazzling on the illustrations!” she says. So far Thato has illustrations of over 50 ballerinas including ones named in homor of Misty Copeland, Ingrid Silva and Michaela DePrince. Ballerinas are not the only illustrations that Thato enjoys. She also created the Afrik Art series, which features women wearing bold and vibrant Afro centric fabric. Her animal series is specifically created for kids or nursery room decor. The illustrations are often in bold, constrasting colors, which create a compelling palette. Thato has now introduced new products including tote bags, ballerina t-shirts and postcards to her Tuli Art line as well.
This artist is also an award-winning filmmaker and a TV/Film Instructor in Boston. She is currently working on her MFA in Stage and Screen Writing at Lesley University. She is a wife and a mother of three precious kids: two boys and one girl. To reach Thato, you may Email her at email@example.com or go to her website which is: www.tuliart.com.
There will be a closing reception in the gallery on Thursday, May 30th, from 6-8 PM. Please stop by on May 30th, meet the artist, and view her lovely work.
