All pleas and warnings made by the public to Rasta the Artist have fallen on deaf ears. Following Shona Ferguson’s death, Mzansi begged Rasta NOT to make a portrait of Shona Ferguson. Lo and behold, the artist has drawn up his own version of Uncle Sho.
The artist took to Twitter himself to pay his tributes.

Dead or alive, no South African is safe from his brush. And this year, his celebrity status soared even higher with his newest drawings of South African and international celebrities.
No matter how many times South Africans told Zimbabwean born artist Lebang Sirenje, Rasta to his fans, to retire, he kept on going and kept on trending.
Whether you agree with him or not, Rasta is not about to stop painting. “Rated best paint artist in S.A. Art is my passion, I tell stories as they are, and let my creativity do the magic,” his Twitter bio says.
The only public figure that Rasta seemed to “respect” was that of King Zwelithini who passed earlier this year.

Though he is no highbrow art school graduate with awards and R1m artworks, his portraits are well-recognised and often a topic of conversation.
If you know Rasta, you definitely know the criticisms that follow him and his work. People often take issue and are even outraged by his depictions of SA’s most famous faces. Often taking to Twitter with his artwork, Rasta’s replies and mentions are full of his critics ready to dish a hot take on his supposed flops and fails.
However, I believe Rasta has been cut a raw deal by the citizens of this country. As much as his paintings can easily be torn apart for their lack of accuracy, at some point we have to accept art is subjective. Most people understand this, but somehow Rasta’s haters often foam at the mouth.
