Born in 1982.
She lives and works in Birmingham (UK).
A postgraduate of the Royal Academy of Arts in London, after completing a BA in Art at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, Carla Busuttil’s work interrogates shadows and spectres of colonialism and wealth inequality. Her work is influenced by the context of her childhood in South Africa at the end of apartheid. The artist reflects on contemporary segregated environments and places of exclusion and privilege – gated communities, public schools, tax havens – and their impact on society.
She has had numerous solo exhibitions, including at the Josh Lilley Gallery in London and Space K in Seoul, as well as at the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Busuttil is featured in the recent publications 100 Painters of Tomorrow, Painting Now and Picturing People (Thames & Hudson).
