Kagiso Pat Mautloa was born in a rural community to the west of Johannesburg. He later moved to Soweto with his family. He then received his primary and secondary education schools in the area, matriculating in 1973 from Morris Isaacson High School.
He received art lessons at the Mofolo Art Centre in the 1970s from artist Dan Rakgoathe. Mautloa enrolled at the Rorke’s Drift Art and Craft Centre to complete a Diploma in Fine Art. He participated in many of the local and international artists’ workshops of the ‘80s and early ‘90s.
Mautloa draws his inspiration from the Johannesburg, the dynamics of the changing city and the people he encounters there. He is a founding member of the Bag Factory Artists’ Studio where he continues to work, filled with pieces of the urban debris collected on his walks through the city.
