Greek visual designer based in Cyprus, Charis Tsevis created this magnificent series of digital illustrations entitled “African Bricks”. Inspired by Mandela’s house in Soweto, he designed mosaic artworks with colorful bricks. A reference to the “matchbox” houses, these standardized South African houses criticized during the Apartheid which in those flamboyant illustrations become symbols or courage and creativity. Through this series designed for an african restaurant in Athens, Charis Tsevis pays a tribute to the zulu king Shaka, and to the traditions of Zulus, Ndebele, Xhosa and the other tribes of the country.
