SSF 2016 Featured Visual Artist Alfrena Moosa

Spiritually and creatively inspired by music, visual artist Alfrena Moosa calls her body of work “Let the rainbow lead the way”. Within this work one will find multiple techniques being used. Some are blind contour drawings, the illusion of textures, different colors in specific areas, abstraction and so much more. The images that she creates are used inspired by her love for music and her inner clown.  While creating a narrative, her goal is to never limit herself to the simplicity of the everyday artwork that one may see when visiting art galleries, but to always try new things, by using color, lines and figures.



Alfrena was selected to create Spoken Soul Festival 2016 Goddess.
