Thari Ya Badimo (Blanket of the Ancestors)

Through the use of acrylic paint, Matsena is putting expression to the influences he experienced as a young boy that has helped to shape the man he is today. Known as an artist who never shies away from socio-political comment, this time he has taken a personal approach and cast people such as his mother and a favourite uncle as the main protagonists of his paintings. He also reminds us that even in growing up, life is never free of the political.
 
Thari ya badimo translates as "Blanket of the Ancestors".
