Nelson Mandela – ‘Golden Smile’ – 2 metre width x 3 metre height x 7cm depth. Imported Italian ‘Maimeri’ acrylic paint on 340 gsm canvas.
This was my largest commission to date and has also been my biggest challenge thus far. Two sheets of canvas had to be sewn together to get the extra width that was needed. Mandela’s hair is a two inch thick impasto. It was finished a month before he passed away.
