Loyiso expresses his art “My gift as an artist is also a duty to enrich the world with visions that dare to break the world’s façade and inspire a greater tomorrow. The human being’s complexities and pre-occupations fascinate me and so become the subject matter where I attempt to mold a new consciousness. My art is created to shock, to scare, to evoke emotion, to touch, and ultimately to inspire. And so I’ll remain prolific in this lifelong commitment allowing my hand to be the channel between you and I. My vision belongs to the world”.
