    Nelson Mandela: Your memories

    The lights come on in JHB to remember Nelson Mandela

    The day after Nelson Mandela Died, I decided to get onto the roof of our building and see what I could find that signifies my hero Nelson Mandela. In the distance a building flashed messages saying rest in peace mandela, as well as the one have posted to you lala Tata. On the right a torch was lit with an opening in the clouds showing me his path to heaven, and in the windows of the buildings i saw his name written in light. Being an artist I thought id enhance the spelling of Nelson Mandela as part of what he meant to me and the nation and that is " to BRING LIGHT, life and hope INTO EVERY HOME in South Africa, and that he So... did. Personally I met Madiba on numerous occasions, and even had a cup of tea and an informal chat with him in his Maputo home in Mozambique.
    I plan on selling a limited 100 prints (60cm x150cm) and part of the earnings will be going to the Nelson Mandela children s fund. Thanks Pierre Bassani
