Dartmoor Pony series

Two Dartmoor Ponies, almost up to their hocks, are drinking in a watering hole, quite full from recent rain. One is piebald and one is white. A brown pony is grazing on the rough moorland grass in the near distance.

Artist Nelson Makamo’s Dynamic Portraits of Johannesburg Children

Fun and Random


With a dizzying flurry of oil paints, watercolors, silkscreen & monotype printing techniques, charcoal, and ink, artist Nelson Makamo captures the daily life of South African children as reflected in their charismatic faces. Based in Johannesburg, Makamo prefers to refer to himself as a storyteller or narrator of what he encounters everyday. "I document each day visually because for me each day is a blessing, being able to capture movements and feelings of people who live around me." His portraits depict hopeful faces filled with laughter and confidence, awash in spirited dashes of color. Via Salon Ninety One:

Key themes informing Makamo's practice include the city of Johannesburg with its dizzying dynamism, portraiture, the narrative of the artist's personal history – an unpolitical archive of personal experience, as well as themes of migration, urbanization, identity, masquerade and the transition from childhood to adulthood. Makamo ultimately strives to communicate a universal experience, which viewers can relate to and access through his artwork.

Makamo has exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in South Africa, France, Italy, the U.S., The Netherlands and Scotland over the last few years. You can see more of his artwork at Candice Berman Fine Art or follow him on Instagram. And just in case you were wondering, his shoes. (via Lustik)
