Conversations with Nelson Makamo

To see Nelson Makamo’s work is to bear witness to brush strokes that carry a life like energy and vibrancy. It is to instantly remember some of the fondest memories of your childhood. As one avid fan of his work once described it, ‘his work is like the sound of the ice cream truck coming around the corner’. There are tones of familiarity and shades of nostalgia, all embodied by depictions of, often, children just…being. We had a conversation with the artist, view the video below.
