Thembinkosi Kohli’s ‘The Whole of the Moon’ solo exhibition currently showing at The Black Box gallery is a comic book art series that captures a boy called Q-phy looking at the world with a sense of wonderment and surprise in a series of paintings.

This Cape Town-based artist uses his comic art style to explore how two people looking at the same thing often don’t actually see the same thing. We see a boy with a big smile connecting with seemingly simple things in nature such as trees, fish, birds, the sky, walking etc. The wonderment comic art technique has lots of potential and sets the bar for other artists to experiment with. This series is quite simple, yet very unique.

Thembinkosi Kohli paintings are available through the Black Box Gallery in Cape Town.
