The Pandemic Project :: Neo Mahlangu

Since debuting her artworks at an August House Open Studio ( Johannesburg, 2017) and having a sold out showing, Mahlangu has shown regularly at galleries domestically and made her Fair debut at the Latitudes Art Fair Johannesburg, 2019), showing with the South African Mint the work that is now on Two Rand (R2) circulation coins. In 2017, Mahlangu was a finalist for the Cassirer Welz Award, and was later listed by Between 10and5 as one of the Top 30 creatives under 30 in 2018. Design Indaba listed her as an Emerging Creative during the same year. She made history by being the youngest person to design two R2 coins for South Africa (to commemorate 25 years of democracy) and Mr Price Home gave her reigns to design a blanket for their COLAB Collection which later sold out. She has been nominated by the Arts & Culture Trust (ACT) for the ImpACT Awards for Young Professionals in 2020.
