Educated Africa


Nelson Makamo challenges the stereotype of the African Child. Instead of a malnourished child stuck in poverty, he shows us another side of Africa. Children that are educated and thriving.
Seeking a symbol to communicate wisdom and education Nelson settled for glasses. Glasses are often worn by professors, nerds, and other smart people therefore strongly associated with intellect. In this piece Kara honours Nelson Makamo and his work by transferring one of his pieces into a lino print.
