Molepolole-born Karabo Gabautlwe's artistic journey began at tender age while still at primary school. Even though he thought that being able to create things which had form was part of his learning curve, people around him noticed that he had a talent.

His teachers played a major role in encouraging him to take his artistic talent seriously. To inspire him, they went to the extent of choosing him to be the one who draws diagrams on the chalkboard all the time. "When I proceeded to my junior school I met other Art teachers at Boitshoko Junior School who introduced me to coloured pencils which I am still using now.

I started focusing on Art in 2019 after attaining my Occupational Health and Safety certification. I realised that my talent can penetrate the art market as my senior school teacher at Moeding College kept saying," he told Arts & Culture. Furthermore, he explained that his favourite artwork was a drawing of Ndaba Gaolatlhe that people also liked and appreciated on social media and on the streets. This young talent chose to specialise in portraits drawings. He also pointed out that he hosted an exhibition earlier this year at the Airport Junction mall that people liked.
