The Rock of the Noahtion

The Rock of the Noahtion was inspired by the South African Comedian and host of the Daily Show, Trevor Noah. After reading Trevor’s book, “Born a Crime” I was so touched by the beautiful relationship that he has with his mother,

and how she raised him as a single mother to the humble person he is today and I  wanted to capture that in my art.

I used acrylic paint with a monochrome colour scheme for the portrait and for contrast in the background I used recycled soda cans and Nespresso capsules. The design in the background is inspired by a Xhosa tribal pattern to represent that of Trevor’s Xhosa heritage.
