1001 Black Men–#159

Tomorrow’s drawing will be another group scene/composite portrait. But today I’m feeling very inspired by my memory of one of the attendees at The Art of Living Black exhibition at American Steel (on Mandela Parkway). His bright white hair and plain black dress stood out against the large and colorful collage paintings* on the wall behind him (only his t-shirt is visible in this drawing, but he was also wearing black trousers and a pair of black oxfords).


*The paintings were created by South African artist Fortune Sitole, whose depictions of South African townships are absolutely beautiful.
