Ory Bwens Katalayi

Ory Bwens Katalayi was born in Congo DRC. At the age of four, his family relocated to Cape Town, South Africa. He started drawing at a young age and would exchange cartoon drawings in primary school. He is an independent artist and got trained by highly experienced individuals that became close friends.

‘I use art to express, keep, gain, teach, guide, love, create, save, remind, kill, and joke. But, most importantly, to give back to the world. Art plays a crucial role in my life, it has taken me from nothing to a better nothing, and art has been good to me for a very long time, it has kept me humble, and has forced me to always keep on thinking, innovating, and improving. I would describe myself as a Visual Activist, as for me art is, first and foremost, the very act of using one’s hands for the purpose of creation and storytelling’.
