Mogomotsi Tlhako (25) from Seleka is a Masters Degree holder in Forensic Science from the Botswana International University of Science and Technology (BIUST) whose passion for arts started at a young age.

The young man is a self-taught visual artist who does realism art. In an interview with Arts & Culture, Tlhako said he specialises in graphite and charcoal media. He explained that he has been drawing all his life, saying it has been part of him for a very long time.

Tlhako added that he developed his skills when he was about 11-years-old. “I then realised that I could draw a noticeable human face. I did a lot of pencil-based portraits. I improved my drawing skills as I continuously practiced and I eventually got so much better at drawing and I now make detailed artworks. The idea of progression inspires and motivates me and I am always eager to do better on my next drawing.
