Nelson’s Mandela Celebrated in New Art Exhibition
New perspectives on the life of Nelson Mandela were on show at an exhibition of John Meyer’s paintings of the great South African leader. A private viewing of the exhibition held in Johannesburg on February 23rd, 2017, enabled South Africans to see the show before it embarks on a tour of major artistic centres around the world. The 16 featured works, rendered in acrylics and sand-on-canvas, were loaned for the exhibition by their owner, Richmark Holdings CEO Andrew Dunn, who initially commissioned Meyer to produce them.

Creativity and South Africa’s Future
The contribution made to the Mandela exhibition by Richmark holdings is entirely fitting, given Richmark’s determination to boost South African society in cultural terms as well as commercial ones. Ever since it was established at the beginning of the 21st century by entrepreneur and philanthropist Gavin Varejes, Richmark has focused on the task of supporting creativity by backing young entrepreneurs as they establish the businesses and visions that will sustain South Africa in the great years that lie ahead.
