Mabulu's 'Randela' depicts scarred revolution

Sapa and Times LIVE | 12 November, 2012 10:50
'Randela' by Ayanda Mabulu.

Cape Town artist Ayanda Mabulu's latest painting depicts a scarred face of Nelson Mandela on one of the new banknotes.

Named 'Randela', the painting is meant to illustrate the issue of the economy in South Africa, how the gap between rich and poor has widened.

"The leaders are enriching themselves and are overcome by lust of material gain, greed, and are creating an economic gap that leaves black people of this country destitute and starving in the townships. It's also about the economy being in the hands of a few and that the people represented by Nelson Mandela are living in unfavourable conditions," Mabulu was quoted as saying.

"Even Mandela himself surely is not proud of what is happening, in the money I have painted half of his face as a greedy vampire to showcase the capitalists hidden behind the facade (the capitalists leaders)," said Mabulu.

The painting is on display at Greatmore Art studio, 47-49 Greatmore street, Woodstock, Cape Town.
