“When producing this body of work we were influenced by a number of factors that aided us to narrate authentic African stories that will encourage giving in abundance such as graffiti, street art, pop art and graphic design.
My brother Justice is known for creating intellectually and emotionally dense art and films, where as I love creating illustrative portraiture. Sthu Manaka’s contemporary paintings were really the perfect ingredient to completing this collection as we continue to revolutionise the creative space by partnering with brands such as Tastic.
