- South Africans sent out an urgent SOS to trace the infamous artist known as Rasta
- Rasta’s creative works of art haven’t been seen for a while and a social media post called on the artist to do a painting of the former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe
- The post left many in stitches and it seems the controversial painter is sorely missed
South African artist, Rasta, is well-known to many South Africans and the controversial painter enjoys somewhat of a cult following.
However, Rasta is more fondly remembered for his warped portraits than his accurate ones.
The beleaguered painter is arguably one of Mzansi’s most popular painters and Briefly.co.za previously reported on some of his most famous blunders.
Briefly.co.za noted that Rasta has been relatively quiet of late and it hasn’t taken social media long to come calling.
Twitter user Man's Not Barry Roux (@AdvBarryRoux) shared a tweet on Thursday which called for Rasta to re-emerge and paint the former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe.
Mugabe passed away last week and it seems some South Africans want him to be immortalised by the legendary painter.
Tshawe'Lihle (@XhosaNatic) commented, “He don't wanna be jailed he won't do it.”
Paradox (@Paradox_Author) added, “I guess he now knows where to draw the line.”
Mla'Costa (@lmoloi22) said, “I am Also surprised. I was expecting to see his master Piece all over my Timeline.”
Jenny (@MahlodiJR) responded, “The paint is still drying You will be shocked next week this time.”
