Tshepiso Moropa is a visual artist and archivist based in Johannesburg. She produces work in a variety of mediums including illustration, collage making, painting, photography and film. 
Moropa's work explores themes of identity, family relations, violence, race, gender, love and sexuality, solitude and the sense of belonging. Her subject matter is either a self-portrait or archived images of African women found in library resources or research sites on the internet. A rich source of material is also found in African folkloric tales that the artist translates from Setswana and re-constructs as short animations, She explores connections between South Africans living today and their forgotten ancestors, describing this process as a way of bringing the figures in the photographs back to life.
