Nelson Mandela – ‘Neon Smile’ – 1.0 metres width x 1.5 metres height x 9cm depth. Imported Italian ‘Maimeri’ acrylic paint on 340 gsm canvas.

A portrait of Nelson Mandela and that classic smile is a symbol of hope to all. This portrait being neon Ultra Violet pink and purple brought a sense of dynamic energy to the subject and even an excitement that evokes a happy spirit for which he will always be remembered. So many paintings of him use such serious colours, but I wanted to show his more humorous side, through the use of louder colours, thus giving it a really positive energy.
