Nelson Mandela As An Artist

artI AM AComment

Today marks the 100th birthday of Nelson Mandela! To mark this occasion, WeTransfer has curated an exclusive online exhibition together with the House of Mandela to showcase many of the unseen illustrations that were drawn by Nelson Mandela. 

The artwork is thought provoking, especially to see the creative side from a politician. Our favourites are the charcoal illustrations from the Nguni Bull that represents strength, to the dove, that represents freedom. As Mandela once said "It always seems impossible until it's done."

Receipt Art For Real

artI AM AComment

It is possible to find art on receipt, especially on Italian's artist Michael Moccia's instagram account. From the wood block print "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" of Japanese artist Hokusai, to Van Gogh's Starry Sky, Gustav Klimt's The Kiss, Edvard Munch's The Scream, these classic artworks have been recreated and illustrated on the humble receipt. Receipts are never the same again. Ceci n'est pas une peinture.

First, Coffee

Coffee provides a warm hug, especially when they are held in coffee cups that are illustrated with such bright and warm colours and patterns. More fab coffee cups can be found on Instagram via Coffee Cups of the World
