Musonda Kabwe is an award-winning Illustrator from Johannesburg. He traverses the two worlds of traditional and digital approaches toward art-making, as well as those of contemporary art and creative industry. 

He works independently, conceptualising short and long-term projects that question social reality and galvanise empathy.

His work has been featured in Foreign Policy Magazine, The Sunday Times, The Mail & Guardian & Design Indaba, Red bull Music Academy

" The lifeblood of Kabwe’s work is hybridity."

The Mail & Guardian

"He recognises that people tend to keep their thoughts to themselves, and he hopes to get them laughing about such obstacles. Kabwe sees No Narrative as a weekly offloading of his own life experiences, reflecting on them and seeing personal issues under
an objectifying filter of simple illustrations."

Design Indaba

"Müs has a beautiful way of communicating powerful messages through illustrations – which is probably why industry professionals so often turn to him."
