Sandi Mdekazi attended art classes after he finished school in 2000. There he learned how to do mosaics out of ceramic tiles and glass, as well as using mirrors.
Quickly he got his own ideas and got first orders for larger mosaic work, which decorate several facades in the townships and other buildings.
He also did the mosaic reception desk for the Red Cross Children’s Hospital in Cape Town. In 2008 he won the first price of an art competition.
Besides the large mosaics Sandi does also smaller mosaics and mosaic mirrors in his workshop in Langa, ideal for transport and hanging at home.
