  1. I attended Jonathan's exhibition on Saturday 29th of March and I was totally captivated by his works. His portrayal of African society brings his works to life and shows the beauty of African culture at its fullest. His choice of water color is all the more intriguing considering Africa is full of colors and nothing brings out the color in our everyday life.

    It was quite a learning and beautiful experience in front of his works..I feel greatness is just round the corner for this enterprising, innovative and mesmerizing artist.
