As his first and last names respectively suggest, Reason Gaolaolwe says he firmly feels the reason he is fulfilling his purpose for his existence by using art is to freely communicate everyday messages to the communities he lives in.

Ironically, he also says his second name Gaolaolwe which means “one who is not submissive” has given him the freedom not to be confined to just one area of visual creativity. This Orapa native, who is now a resident of Nazareth/Nazaretha ward in Metsimotlhabe has since embarked on a creative journey of outdoor illustrations. Gaolaolwe told Arts&Culture that this journey commenced following the completion of his Botswana General Certificate of Secondary Education (BGCSE) in 2019.

Born on October 28, 2002, the versatile artist did most of his schooling in Orapa, starting at Tawana Pre-School, Boteti House Primary School before enrolling at Orapa Secondary School. He then proceeded to Letlhakane Senior Secondary School where he attained an A-Star pass mark for Art for his BGCSE. Despite his remarkable potential and talent, Gaolalolwe says he has never received further training or been exposed to some form of professional mentoring or tutoring upon completion of his secondary education.
