Born in 1971, Tshepo Sibeko is the first born child of artist Peter Sibeko. Tshepo Sibeko started to demonstrate his interest in art at age 15 by drawing in the paved streets. His father encouraged Tshepo to use color in his work, and a new artist bearing the name Sibeko was born.
Tshepo Sibeko works in pastels, watercolors, oils, acrylics, pen and ink, his preference being pastels. His works typically depict township scenes, musicians, mine workers, daily encounters and some political works of tribute or remembrance. Tshepo Sibeko works fulltime as an artist.
