My exhibition at Japan Cultural Expo

The Embassy of Japan in South Africa hosted the 2019 Japan Cultural Expo in Brooklyn Mall, Pretoria, from 1 to 3 March. As part of the event, I was asked to present some of my artworks.

Makiwa Gallery

Terése De Klerk, the manager of Makiwa Gallery, who had been familiar with my works, was enthusiastic and very supportive about hosting my exhibition.
私の作品を以前から知っていた「マキワ画廊」のマネージャー、テレサ・デクラークが熱心に協力してくれた。

I took 12 paintings and 17 prints to the gallery two days before the opening.
