Esther Mahlangu's Tribute to Nelson Mandela
An exhibition at The Melrose Gallery
Posted: Feb 16 2017
The brilliant Esther Mahlangu, on 1 March 2017, wil be joining Dr Makaziwe Mandela in unveiling a collection of artwork inspired by Nelson Mandela at the Melrose Gallery.
The particular body of work was created in 2004, and Esther maintains that it was the most rewarding collaboration of her entire career. The paintings were created by embellishing prints of drawings created by Mr Mandela in in 2001, in her own style.
The exhibition will also include some of Mahlangu's more recent work and collectors are being offered the chance to acquire a set of fine limited prints reproduced from her Mandela inspired works. They have been signed by Esther and come in a special collector's edition box with a certificate of authenticity signed by Dr Makaziwe Mandela.
The exhibition will run from 2 March until 2 April and offers us a once in a lifetime glimpse into a collaboration unlike any seen before by two of South Africa's greats.
Make sure to get to the Melrose Gallery in Melrose Arch during the month long exhibition.
