Sithole was born in 1970, at Kwa-Thema, Springs. After he matriculated at Kenneth Masikela Secondary, Pat enrolled at Intec College in 1999 where he studied Commercial Art for 3 years. In 2009 he was selected for the Sasol New Signatures competition and also received merit awards for the Ekurhuleni National Fine Art Awards in 2006 and 2007. He received some of his earliest exposure to art from his uncle, the well-known Lucas Sithole.
Sithole’s first solo exhibition in 2012 was a sell-out. It formed part of his year-long mentorship programme with Artspace where Sithole pushed the boundaries of his own practice under the guidance of artist and mentor Francki Burger. Sithole will also be one of the featured artists at the FNB Joburg Art Fair 2013 where Artspace (soon to be Lizamore & Associates) will have a booth with a selection of artists.
