Bambo Sibiya completed a Design certificate at Benoni Technical College in 2005 and, together with a friend, opened a small graphic design business. In 2008 he was offered a full bursary to Artist Proof Studio.

As a student Bambo was encouraged to develop his personal content through cultural and art-historical research as well as by participating in social advocacy programmes. He began to etch poignant compositions of poverty in his local community. His subsequent themes, based loosely on the experience of his mother, led to an accomplished series concerning single mothers as heads of their households. Bambo lived with a culture of alcoholism, growing up amid the breakdown of his own family structure. Many of his prints depict mothers as the most elevated gures in his compositions, conveying the message that despite hardship and unemployment, women still manage to nd ways to feed their families, nurture and protect their children and keep their families in relative security.

He has received a number of awards including the Gerald Sekoto Award for the most promising artist in the 2012 L’Atelier art competition and the Arts and Culture Trust Award 2012.
