- Famed SA artist Rasta is back with another painting, this time it includes the Royal family
- Rasta painted Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in honour of their pregnancy announcement
- Rasta's unique work gained a lot of hilarious responses on social media with a tad bit of trolling
Lebani 'Rasta' Sirenje has made his mark countless times with his unique paintings. Rasta recently 'ran out of paint' and asked South Africans to donate money to him so he could buy more.
Now, the famous artist has painted Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in celebration of the announcement of their second pregnancy. Rasta 'honoured' the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with a rather peculiar painting, only he could make.
Once again, Rasta received a little trolling from SAns. Others complimented his special art that is quite unique and abstract.
View Rasta's piece with a few responses below:
"Please stick to painting our SA ancestors, not the Royals from other countries, you're embarrassing us."
"The way you transformed that dress into a full winter."
"Rasta yazi!! Whew! You just ruined my day further!"
"Mara Rasta why? For the why mfowethu?"
@Cebsdlamin responded with:
"The size of Rasta's liver is unmatched."
Rasta's portrait follows the news that the Duke and Duchess are expecting their second child broke. Meghan and Prince Harry released a beautiful photoshoot to share their joy with the world.
As mentioned before, Rasta is known for his peculiar work. Recently he painted former president Jacob Zuma and EFF leader Julius Malema at the tea party at Nkandla. The original picture featured the two politicians smiling broadly but Rasta opted to forgo adding faces to his painting.
"The tea was very hot. @EFFSouthAfrica @ANCParliament #NkandlaTeaParty," he captioned his latest set of work.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Rasta The Artist did gain some positive recognition after his painting of Big Zulu went viral. The painting resulted in SAns being certain that the art actually did resemble a local celebrity, Rasta himself.
