‘Nelson Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom’ art exhibition is extended
The Belgravia Gallery in London has been hosting the Nelson Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom exhibition, which presents a selection of powerful artwork by Nelson Mandela to commemorate his distinguished life. The gallery is pleased to announce that the exhibition will now continue for an additional period of time and will not close its doors until the 10th of February.
The work that is showcased in Mayfair was originally launched by Nelson Mandela on Robben Island in 2003 where he spoke of his love of drawing. The exhibition features 16 lithographs which were signed by Mandela when gallery owners Laura Walford and Anna Hunter travelled to meet him at his home in South Africa in 2002.
Also featured in the exhibition are original drawings of Robben Island where Mandela was imprisoned, hand written pieces that explain Mandela’s motivation behind particular pieces and a signed and illustrated copy of Mandela’s book, The Long Walk to Freedom. In addition, images of his beloved South Africa and photography from throughout his extraordinary life by celebrated photographer Jurgen Schadeberg are on display.
