Clement Mohale is a South African contemporary artist whose work is vibrant and emotive.I use a variety of mediums such as charcoals and pastels with a palette of basic colours to convey my ideas.I am inspired by daily lived experiences and challenges that I witness every day. My work portray the diverse culture of the African continent people as well as people I see who are trying to find a fit in a society that comes with it's own standard and ideals.My work aims to investigate the emotional, psychological and physical impact experienced by the people in the quest for a normal life.

Drawing from my own clan royal history, I uses its symbol as a metaphor for owning to your rights, having the power and the will to decide for the greater good. The crown is symbolism of revisiting the lost but not forgotten history and thus perpuate the notion that power is derived from birthright.I use the Johannesburg skyline as a metaphorical kingdom, I revisits my ancestorial past with a current hopeful present.
