Levoy Dlamini from Paragon Art set out to add a new dimension to his Contemporary African art by incorporating different mediums into his art works. His portrait of Dr Phillip Thabane, Africa’s greatest musician is a fusion of pen on canvas and instillation. He explains how his craftsmanship has evolved in his journey. “I decided to add something to the portrait that would be significant to the man, to basically give It more depth, hence the guitar strings. With the portrait of Nelson Mandela I just basically wanted to add more depth and texture to the decorated man that he is, so I added an instillation of a shirt made from African print fabric.”
We will be on the lookout for this young upcoming talented artist to see how he will further innovate to tell a story through his craft.
