Milton Public Library to host work of Milton artist Thato Mwosa in Wotiz Gallery
Wotiz Gallery to feature owner of Tuli Art
During the month of May 2019, the Milton Public Library will host the work of Milton artist Thato Mwosa in the Wotiz Gallery. Ms. Mwosa is a multifaceted artist who is the owner of Tuli Art, a business that specializes in ballerina illustrations. When she started decorating her daughter Tuli’s room, Thato wanted a ballerina themed décor. After finding that black/brown ballerina art was scarce, Thato decided make illustrations inspired by her daughter. The result is a truly remarkable array of ballerinas in different poses wearing bold and vibrant costumes. These ballerina silhouettes represent girls of any color. This is what she says about her work: “I believe in personalizing the ballerina illustrations as much as I can. My customers give me the name of their daughters/granddaughters/nieces, etc… and their favorite colors. After that the magic happens. Sometimes I even add a little bedazzling on the illustrations!” she says. So far Thato has illustrations of over 50 ballerinas including ones named in honor of Misty Copeland, Ingrid Silva and Michaela DePrince. Ballerinas are not the only illustrations that Thato enjoys, she created the Afrik Art series, which features women wearing bold and vibrant Afro centric fabric. And her animal series is specifically created for kids or nursery room décor. The illustrations are often in bold contrasting colors, which create a compelling palette. Thato has now introduced new products including tote bags, ballerina t-shirts and post cards to her Tuli Art line as well.
This artist is also an award winning filmmaker and a TV/Film Instructor in Boston. She is currently working on her MFA in Stage and Screen Writing at Lesley University. She is a wife and a mother of three precious kids: two boys and one girl also. To reach
