My real name is Punguin sibisi I was born in 1998 on the 14th of February at Tembisa hospital, I am a self taught visual artist, I use pencil, pen and coloured pencils to draw. I also do painting. I started doing art at the age of 12 back in primary school and started taking it serious in 2017
I’m more interested in drawing portraits, I draw celebrities most, my love for hip hop made it easy for me to blend in drawing hip hop artist just to blend in and contribute to the culture of hip hop, I also draw other types of drawing not… only portraits.. I’m well know as P_Brain as it is the name I use wen presenting my artworks, I use it in all social media platforms (@p_brain sa art)
I’ll Also like to get to venture in to graffiti artworks and also do tattoos as time goes on to get enough cash to purchase the equipment. Art is one of the ways I share my thoughts and feelings without having to say out a word
In art I can be able to congratulate the artists that are doing great in the hip hop space and I can also pass my condolences to rappers who pass on by doing a sketch of him or her… My dream is to be able to be recognized by those who are in the hip hop space and grow as an artist that has an influence in the hip hop space by means of doing sketches and also be able to do commission sketches for big names in the hip hop space
My wish is to have an art gallery in future that will be focusing more on uplifting the new artists to be able to get a platform to showcase their work to the public and be able to make a decent living though art
