Kgole said, "Some people cried when they saw some of the masterpieces and when they heard the touching stories, they got inspired and wanted to know more about me and my people."

The Limpopo-born painter revealed that living in Europe brought its fair share of financial difficulties, but seems to be enjoying the eye-opening experience.

Kgole also shared some of the positive feedback he received from attendees.

He said, "A lot of people came back to me after the show, saying that I am crazy or beyond my time. That's because they find the soul I leave in the works and they relate to the beauty they face."
