An 80-year-old lady from South Africa has become an artistic inspiration around the world. Her old-school approach is part of her mission to keep her people’s custom alive. She has broken barriers in the art world for so many reasons, one of which she was one of the FIRST women and non-western person to collaborate on creating designing a car (for e.g.). Her bold geometric prints and patterns are part of a custom from the Ndebele tribe, which is passed down for generations of women in the family as a right of passage in their culture. The designs are traditionally used to decorate both the inside and outside of their houses.
“I want the children and everyone to preserve it and to learn it,” Mahlangu said through her interpreter.
