Lebogang Mogul Mabusela aka monotypebabe prides herself in being the director of and inventor for Makoti Technologies™, a Bridal outlet that sells guns, tools and technologies that roast patriarchy and enhance women's desires. Her practice extends to printmaking, where she uses dainty and gendered objects such as doilies to explore black femininity through the lens of being a killjoy. She often works in monotypes; watercolour painting; the book arts such as zines and other paper-based practices; performance and installation. Lebogang just completed a 2-month online residency with the BLVCK BLOCK. Now she is currently showing her guns in the Nonrepresentational group show online with Stevenson Gallery
