This means that the spotlight is on him and his art practice and collectors  have an opportunity to buy the art works  that are displayed .

About his work, the artist has this to say:

“I believe that doing my passion (painting) is how I thank God for this precious gift called life and also it’s a medium which helps me discover a way of life to be a better person. I use people that I know as models sometimes I am a model. Symbols and totems from around the globe are included in these pieces. It is influenced by surrealism, classical paintings and old masters like Rembrandt and Caravaggio. I take inspiration from books, allegories, mythology, philosophy and everything that resonates with me I try to interpret that through my work.” – says Mfundo.
