LORENZO PLAATJIES

Lorenzo Plaatjies - Future.png

Lorenzo Plaatjies is a South African Digital Artist based in Johannesburg. He is heavily influenced by pop and social media culture and modern day music legends such as Frank Ocean and Kanye West. His career began in high school, creating mixtape covers.  At a time where more young people are questioning the typecasting of gender, Plaaitjies uses pink in most of his work as, traditionally, the colour does not represent males. Plaatjies is inspired by the idea of hedonism in the context of social and online culture. He is currently ranked 2nd in Behance’s digital art category.
