Khaya Sineyile

Khaya Sineyile (born 1983) is a primarily self-taught artist born in New Cross Roads, Nyanga, Cape Town.

He attended the Art and Media Access Center (AMAC) (2005) and was selected as a residency artist at Greatmore Studios in 2009. Later that year Khaya was selected to do a short term residency at Souk Waqif Art Center in Doha Qatar.

Sineyile has participated in more than 50 group show local and internationally.

Artworks of his are included in collections of Spier, Nando’s UK, Truworths, Groote Schuur Hospital and Hollard Insurance, as well as private collections in London, Germany and USA.

Khaya’s subject matter ranges from township scenes to more introspective, referencing children games and observations on religious hypocrisy, faction – fighting and witchcraft. His confident brush marks and considered palette convey rawness which he contrasts with cartoon-like outlines – a device which removes the figure from their background and introduces elements of playfulness, wit and humour to the often loaded subject matter.
