Cinthia Binene Sifa is a visual artist born in DRC (Lubumbashi) and currently living in Johannesburg. She is completing her third year at the Artist Proof Studio.
Cinthia Sifa’s artistic expressions are a series of ongoing explorations of the perceptions and misconceptions of beauty. She creates interior spaces using different mediums of acrylic paint, ink and collage from personal photographs and magazines. The moments created within the interior spaces are dialogues between standards and stereotypes, and those that challenge them. Cinthia uses feminine objects and associations as entities in these spaces, representing thoughts, perceptions and emotions. These spaces allow for the interrogation of the perceptions as much as an embrace of the African woman.
