Madiba Mandela Limited Edition Screen Print by Felix Braun
Celebrating the life of Nelson ‘Madiba’ Mandela, Felix ‘FLX’ Braun’s print evokes the one-time South African President’s earlier life as a revolutionary firebrand. Madiba was Nelson’s clan name, the name black South Africans referred to him by, and the name they chanted in their hundreds of thousands when he passed away.
This print echoes the style of political posters from the 1960s, when potent messages were delivered using rough and ready graphics. Printed cheaply and quickly on makeshift screens, the inks were pulled through hand-cut stencils. Felix spoke at great length to the talented folk at Jacknife Posters and Mark My Words Screen Printing about how to produce the desired effect and we love the results!
This print is a collaboration between Felix, Jacknife and Mark My Words Screen Printing, for PRSC, here in Stokes Croft, Bristol's cultural quarter.
