Nelson Mandela – ‘Still Smiling’, 2.3 metres width x 1.5 metres height x 7 cm depth. Imported Italian ‘Maimeri’ acrylic paint on 340 gsm canvas.

I painted this image of Mandela onto the political party colours of the ANC.. It is particularly relevant at present, seeing as the ANC party is going through such turmoil and Mandela is still alive to see its problems surface. I like the fact that you have to look for the face of Mandela and it is not immediately obvious as to who it is. This is quite poignant, for I personally feel that Mandela’s connection and influence within the ANC is fading. I have tried to emphasise this in the style of the painting.
