PALAPYE: It is not everyday that one gets to meet a versatile artist such as Othusitse Noge. At 28, he is a sculptor, painter, bead-worker, keyboardist and vocalist thanks to an early start in the arts and support from his teachers and family.

“I remember that I started dabbling in arts while still at Tshikinyega Primary School (Mahalapye) where I mostly did wooden sculptures and when I proceeded to Mowana CJSS, I took up art as a subject,” Noge said.  At Mowana, he met two teachers who became his greatest mentors.  Noge said that one of his inspirations is the award-winning artist, Gigi Kenalemang who has encouraged him over the years.

While in Form 3 in 2003, he won a national competition (sculpting category) held at Khama III Memorial School in Serowe.
