Nelson Mandela Print...

Nelson Mandela print, Limited Edition
Tangent Books 

FLX is one of the original Bristol graff artists from the 1980s who came out of the Barton Hill scene fostered by youth worker John Nation. He worked alongside Inkie and Nick Walker in various crews most notably Crime Inc Crew.

He is now an established author and street art historian having written two editions of Children of the Can and lectures and teaches street art.

Madiba Mandela by artist Felix (FLX) Braun celebrates the life of Nelson 'Madiba' Mandela and evokes the memory of a young Mandela as a revolutionary firebrand. Madiba was Mandela's clan name by which South Africans referred to him and the name that hundreds of thousands pf people chanted when Mandela passed away in December 2013.

The print echoes the style of political posters from the 1960s whose potent messages were delivered using the rough-and-ready graphics, printed cheaply on makeshift screens, the inks pulled through hand-cut stencils.

This is a signed limited edition of 100 A2 prints (42cm x 59.4cm) issued through the People's Republic of Stokes Croft. All profits go to PRSC.

Felix Braun is also the author of Children of the Can: An A-Z of Bristol Graffiti and Street Art
