Zanele Montle was born in Kwa Zulu Natal, Empangeni, in 1992. She started her Schooling at Empangeni Primary School in 1999 thereafter attended Empangeni High School from 2006 to 2010. After completing her matric with a distinction in Art she moved to Gauteng and enrolled for a National Diploma in Visual Arts at the University of Johannesburg. She completed her National Diploma in Applied Arts in 2013 and in 2014 graduated with a BTech Degree in Applied Arts at Tshwane University of Technology

The striking use of flatness and primary colours in her work, while situating the characters in domestic or social contexts, suggests a familiarity and an ordinariness. By removing facial details, the artist poses the questions: Who are these people, what have they been through, and how do they feel? The anonymity of the figures depicted by Montle provide the viewer with the possibility to imagine themselves or their loved ones in the artist’s figures, making them all the more intimate.
