Xhosa is an artist, filmmaker and photographer based in Brooklyn, NY. His work revolves around giving his perspective on the beauty of the Black experience and addressing where it can go narratively. Giving Black life new spaces to occupy that might not have been available before, using the wide open natural spaces of the South as a big inspiration as well as cinematic themes that he absorbs. 
He went to school for filmmaking and truly begun his professional journey in 2020 during the pandemic. In 2021 he released his first photo book titled ‘Beauty Behind the Blackness’. In 2022, he held and curated his 1st group exhibition show in L.A and in 2022 he was also named a member of the Louis Armstrong House museum cohort as a filmmaker in residence. When he isn’t creating, you’ll probably find him at a gallery, thrift store, trying new foods or somewhere in nature.
