Nelson Mandela. An Icon. Gone. May he rest in peace. South Africa be strong!

Dec 05, 2013 23:00 GMT Mas.s Just had to share my grief. After a well-spent life, one of the only Icons left on this earth is gone. Leaving an enormous gap but also a wonderful legacy. His life was monumental in many ways. He shall surely be missed by his family, his fellow countrymen and the world at large. Living by example is personified in him. I mean to say this "With all that is within me!" South Africa be strong!

Nov 11, 2013 16:14 GMT Mas.s Mas.s has been asked to paint a couple in his series of portraits on show at the Gagliardi gallery in Chelsea. He says: "I am always amused and inspired by the variety of relationships. The dynamics, the unseen interactions, the hints, the powerstruggles. They are an undisputed source of pain, tolerance, forgiveness, fun, resistance, resiliency, humour etc. I thought I start with a self portrait."

Jul 21, 2013 09:50 BST Mas.s "Supermodel!?", a new painting by Mas.s in his portrait series.Two eyes,a nose and a mouth is what we want to see in a portrait or in a wider picture.It does not really matter how it is portrayed.Our eyes wander over the various features of the face and make connection.The surroundings dressing up that very core of observation.We all seek recognition,contact and communion. We are all supermodels!
