South African artist Rasta recently took to Twitter with a picture of his latest artwork - a portrait of President Donald Trump and his biggest competition for the presidential position in the US 2020 elections, Joe Biden.

Rasta, who is not new to criticism from South Africans over his controversial and sometimes questionable artistry, captioned the Twitter post:

"Opposition painted with one brush #USElections."

Once again Mzansians headed to the comment section of the post - which received just over 200 likes- to share their thoughts on his work. Many Saffas did not find the portrait appealing, cracking many jokes about it.

In similar Briefly.co.za news, South Africa's favourite news anchor Leanne Manas recently surprised social media users after she shared pictures of herself and Rasta with the portrait he painted of her in celebration of her birthday recently.

Leanne took to Twitter on Monday morning to share the pictures as well as to inform her followers that she has since decided to purchase the portrait even though it looks nothing like her. Her tweet read as follows:

Mpofu throws trees at Steenhuisen, wishes him luck with matric exams
"Happy Monday y’all!! Look who I went to visit this weekend @RastaArtis. She is safely in her new home."

Her followers were very surprised at the anchor's decision to buy the portrait since she had initially tweeted that she did not recognise the person in the portrait after Rasta shared it with her online.
