Mokoena completed his NDip (Visual Art) at the University of Johannesburg and his BA Honours (Visual Art) at Wits with distinction. Mokoena is a lecturer in drawing and presentation at the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture at UJ.
Emerging from early practice in printmaking, Mokoena’s painting practice is formally underscored by precise mark making and division of space, while exploring ideas around micro and macro scales of politics, architecture and the environment. Pebofatso's work has received early recognition and support, both locally and internationally.
Mokoena has held 3 (three) solo exhibitions - The Pebofatso Experience at HZRD, Inside Jobs at the Bag Factory, and Internal Probes at David Krut Projects. Curated exhibitions including Diptych; Disclosure - SMAC; Fresh Produce, Songs of Sankofa - First Floor Gallery Harare, Inner Nature, Fortunes Remixed - Bag Factory and South African Voices: A New Generation of Printmakers - Washington DC.
Mokoena’s work lies in public and private collections such as: The Dimension Data collection London; the Springs Art Library Collection, Kaya FM collection, the Africa First collection, the South African Embassy Art Collection in Washington, D.C. and the JP Morgan Global Collection amongst other private and public collections.
