‘I’m passionate about this city. There’s so much energy. The reason why we’re doing what we’re doing is to tell our stories. Most people are afraid to do that. They’re ashamed of where they come from, or what they do.’ Andile Buka
Kabelo Kungwane, Andile Buka, Wanda Lephoto and Xzavier Zulu are The Sartists, a creative collective. The Sartists formed in 2012 with the desire to document and give a voice to urban youth from the townships, while educating the world about the challenges experienced by people living in a post-apartheid South Africa.
Their unique style has attracted wide interest and The Sartists have worked with brands including Levis, Adidas Originals, The Brooklyn Circus, Markhams, Converse, Young and Lazy, and 2bop.
