A local artist named Ennock Mlangeni has caught the attention of social media users after heading online to share his latest work. The talented painter is certainly very versatile, able to transpose his artistic vision onto simple everyday items like a refrigerator.
Heading online, @ennockmartZA says a client of his had been in the market for a new fridge and desperately needed the artist to spice it up.
"My client said. "Ennock I love your work, I am moving in a new home and I am on the process of buying a new fridge and I want you to paint it," he captioned the post in part.
Ennock shared some stunning snaps and beautifully depicted the unique work of art from the time it stood as a simple outlined sketch to its eventual completion. The colourful painting certainly adds a lot of visual interest to the once-grey and lifeless kitchen.

"So relatable": Artist wows with portraits of everyday people, Mzansi impressed
In related news, YEN News previously reported that a talented local artist has wowed South Africans with his portraits of everyday, ordinary people. The painter seems to find beauty in these often overlooked lives and has whisked viewers away into a picturesque world filled with all the memories of home.
Vuyisile Adoons is a Free State-based artist currently residing in the small town of Rouxville. The largely self-taught artist has embraced his pastoral community, painting a young mom feeding her child and an old madala shining his shoes on the street corner.
These recurring themes have attracted the attention of buyers across the globe. Vuyisle says he's sold paintings in the US, UK, Saudi Arabia and Australia already.
For locals, the uncomplicated yet striking works of art seem to reflect a simpler place and time not too far from memory. Many South Africans have commended the artist for depicting everyday people with such dignity.
