Previously, Briefly News reported that Rasta the Artist seized the opportunity to honour the last of South Africa's apartheid presidents, FW de Klerk, by flying to Cape Town to deliver a portrait of the former statesman.
The FW de Klerk Foundation confirmed that de Klerk, who died at his home in Fresnaye on Thursday, 11 November, was diagnosed with cancer in March this year. In his tribute, Rasta, who has become one of the country's most controversial celebrity portraitists, produced artwork that's been receiving raving reviews on social media over the past few days.
Briefly News published a picture post on Facebook that shows Rasta posing with the finished portrait. The post read:
"Rasta just landed in Cape Town to deliver his painting honouring FW de Klerk."
