Lot Essay

Gogo (Grandmother) and Me acts as a work of gratitude, paying homage to the role of a grandmother in the life of a grandchild. Huma reflects on her close relationship with her own grandmother and maternal role she played in the artist’s life.

Lethabo Huma is a digital artist born and raised in Pretoria, South Africa. While she explores various media in pursuit of more precise methods of communication, Huma is best known for her born-digital work: “I create digital paintings and illustrations but still follow traditional painting and drawing techniques in order to achieve expressive brushwork textures. I always strive to improve how I translate my emotions and the stories I share through my selection of muses and brushwork.”
