About "Nelson Mandela"
Nelson Rholihlahla Mandela was a great man; he is an example of the road humanity should be taking. And he is a legend of Africa. This painting is coloured in pastels and original calligraphy by the artist gives insight to some of his amazing thoughts. The original of this painting has been sold, but prints of any size are available. This has been priced for an A0 size print on Artist's Canvas and stretched onto a frame. Smaller prints bought as a set will grace any wall.
I was born in London, but came out to Africa when I was one year old. My father was an engineer and so we lived in many, many parts of Africa - some of which were extremely remote. Until the age of 5, I barely spoke English, but was fluent in a variety of the local tongues. When I was 12 and living near the border of Uganda and Tanzania a boating accident made it necessary for me to swim across the Kagera river in full flood, thus earning me my native name "Samaki", Swahili for "Fish". I sometimes use this name on my paintings. But my love of Africa with its treasure chest of colours, smells, sounds, diverse peoples and wildlife is well-ingrained and Africa will always be my first passion.
