This week on Top Billing in celebration of Madiba's birthday Lorna meets two artists, Susan Woolf and Daniel Mosako, who's work forms part of the We Love Mandela: Art Inspired by Madiba exhibition, which launches at the Peacemakers Museum, Nelson Mandela Square, on Mandela Day.
As part of our Mandela Day celebrations we also meet with Paul Blomkamp, an artist who has felt so inspired by the kind of man Nelson Mandela is that he created a massive 4.2 meters by 4.2 meters painting in his likeness. Join Ursula as she finds out more about his interesting painting technique and what inspires him!
