Everaldo Matonse was born in Maputo, Mozambique, into a family with a rich history of creative talent. Due to the lack of materials in his youth he developed his unique technique.
He currently lives in Durban, South Africa and works at his studio situated in the famous creative hub called BAT centre with other artists.
He creates his works in sophisticated colour combinations using imagery inspired by life in Africa. His main media are oil pastel, oil paint and wood cut prints.
