One of his recent shows was in 2011, when he was officially invited to South Africa for Zindzi Mandela (Nelson Mandela’s daughter)’s fiftieth birthday event. At his live painting performance, his art is improvised with his feeling, but is always dynamic and inspires people beyond the borders, races, and social standings.
