Mabusela critically analyses and focuses on issues such as the patriarchy, racism and heteronormativity, exploring these themes through a variety of formats and methodologies. Mabusela uses humour and satire in her artworks to address serious issues such as rape, harassment, shaming, etc. Her monotypes depict scenarios wherein incidents of the issues she addresses arise, but from a somewhat humorous perspective.
