Sbu Mbuthu

Sbu Mbatha was born on 14th August 1996. A resident of the KwaThaza township, he attended Thuthukani Primary School and Mconjwana High School, where he matriculated.

A realist painter, whose work is inspired by Elvis, Sbu first heard about Ardmore through his uncle who was helping to build a new structure at the studio. He later joined the annual Winter School.

“I enjoy painting and I love Ardmore art,” says Sbu. “I want to be part of Ardmore’s history. Thank you Fee for everything.”
