World Citizen Artists (WCA) celebrates Mandela International Day
'It is in your hands to make of our world a better one for all' - Nelson Mandela
This is the first time the world is celebrating Mandela International Day in the absence of Nelson Mandela, who passed away last year, but friends and followers are celebrating this day to remember and spread his message of love and peace.
Mandela was not only art lover, but himself was an art practitioner who used to take pencil and brush to express his beliefs and views beyond logic through visual art. World Citizen Artists across the globe are celebrating Mandela International Day with the idea that each artist has the power to change the world.
Nomfusi, the South African celebrity singer and actress who played in the movie that celebrated Mandela's life 'Long Walk to Freedom' is headlining WCA's online magazine. In the film, Nomfusi played Myriam Makeba. She has dedicated her latest song 'My Hero' to Mandela.
In WCA's magazine at http://worldcitizenartists.org she speaks about Mandela and her support for WCA.
The Belgravia Gallery in London, UK, run by Anna Hunter and Laura Walford, is also supporting World Citizen Artists by sharing some of Mandela's artwork with WCA. Mandela started to draw for the first time in 2002, when in his eighties. His work is noteworthy for its symbols of struggle, peace and harmony.
WCA's founder, Valerie Won Lee, said "Mandela Day was an obvious choice for us to celebrate because he stands for freedom, human rights and equality across borders with no fear or favour. He is a shining example to humanity."
