Eve Bodirwa also known as the “Creative Visionary” is a Limpopo fine artist born on 24 December 1991. She studied B-tech , fine Art at Tshwane University Of Technology ,Arts Campus.

She is hardworking, motivated and ambitious feminist, an advocate for women empowerment and female liberation. Eve has obtained her experience through working at the Pretoria Art Museum since her second year at University. She has participated in several exhibitions at Pretoria Art Museum, TUT Gallery, Ditsong National Museum of Cultural History, amongst others.

She is not only a fine artist but a Curator and she creates platforms for emerging artists,fashion designers, musicians to exhibit at her curated shows and showcase their talent to various groups of art lovers. In 2019 Eve was appointed by the Limpopo Department of Sport, Arts & Culture to be part of the organising committee for the Cyril Ramaphosa Youth day Celebration in Polokwane where she Selected young creatives to showcase their work and she took Cyril Ramaphosa, DG David Mabuza & Minister Nathi Mthethwa on a tour of her selected artists.

She has had Dialogues in the Creative Sphere with some of the Industry’s legends such as Prof Pitika Ntuli an art veteran and former freedom fighter in 2016 and another dialogue in 2020 with Dr Same Mdluli , Standard Bank Art Gallery Manager powered by the National Arts Council of South Africa. Her artworks have been bought by patrons such as Dr kwame Amuah (Nelson Mandela’s son in law) and the likes of Brilliant Baloyi, a South African Contemporary gospel musician amongst many other clients.

Eve has let her mind wander and her inner spirit take control of how she portrays and executes her work as she believes that her truest creative and expressive self that guides her to creating marvelous masterpieces is her inner Spirit and that can be seen in the way she is so expressive on the canvas with flamboyant use of colour and a more liberal approach in the way she fully expresses her feminist alta-ego on the canvas.

In her recent work #KELAPILE boima bja goba mosadi wa Mo-Africa Series, Eve strongly represents female liberation and feminism aspects as she believes that the African Women are not only tired of a Partriachal system but are tired of being oppressed and suppressed all in the name of the “supposed” Cultural Customs and Tradition. The way she portrays her artworks the titles purposefully triggers some sort of suspense as to what she is really referring to and that is what makes her work even more interesting and she leaves the world on tenterhooks.
