"Jayne During is not only the owner of Kuaba Gallery that represents my artwork , she is a great friend and someone who I admire profoundly.
She founded Kuaba Humanitarian Foundation a few years ago to help HIV orphans in Zimbabwe.
I was so touched and moved by what she does with so little that I wanted to make my own contribution...
In 2007 , I went with her and did an art therapy project with several of the children for a whole week. It was a life changing experience to me and since then I made a commitment to contribute part of the proceeds from my painting to the foundation as well as contribute toward feeding, water and various other project. “
My painting "Domingo na praia do Pepe" (75x120cm/48x30") was auctioned by Sotheby's and sold for 8500 Euros at the Brazilian Night Gala in Monte Carlo .
All the money is going to the Ayrton Senna Foundation that does a wonderful job to provide education to kids in Brazil.
I am very proud to have had the opportunity to contribute to this amazing cause with one of my artwork.
