Art Scene: Gerald Sekoto

Absolutely love these pieces by South African painter Gerald Sekoto. Sekoto left SA in the late 1940s for Paris where he worked for many years as a pianist/musician while pursuing his love of art. Despite the fact that most of his career was spent outside of his home country, I love that his work almost feels like you are looking at a scene from within South Africa. I guess that is the power of memory/nostalgia.
