2013 Dec. 24: Through Artwork We Shall Succeed


by Ayanda Zulu


The late Mr Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela
will forever be remembered (2013)

I am honored to be amongst the artists who took time and passion to do a painting of one of the most respected icons of our time.

Manchester United (2012)

My best friend Nomfundo Goqo is a big fan of Manchester United and this was my way of expressing my love for her and how much I treasure our friendship. The flames represent that I will be there for her through thick and thin.

The moon (2012)

I was inspired by the moon and how it lights up the night. Each time I look at the moon it brings joy within me. So I thought, why not create a crazy piece of the moon with stars and flames to make it catchier.




Dora the explorer (2013)

This is one of my cutest paintings. I painted it in one of the pre-primary schools in Kwa-Zulu Natal, Durban in Folweni Township.




Timon and Pumba (2012)

These were my favorite cartoons from my childhood. I used to watch them all the time when I got home from school. They bring back a lot of good memories.





Ben 10 (2013)

This is my first art done on a high wall. This has taught me that I am capable of the impossible; through this experience I am now able to do anything positive without any fear.
