Mtakatya┬╣s talent for drawing was first recognised in 1986 during the time he was imprisoned for his involvement in the Cape Youth Congress. After his release, he was encouraged to study art.

He thus completed a Diploma at the Foundation School of Art. Mtakatya uses drawing to express the symbolic significance of events and to engage with issues pertaining to history, poetry, African legends, rituals and the politics of gender.
