Reading about Ayanda Mabulu. He says his painting work is comment and no disrespect to Mr President, Jacob Zuma. *yawn*
Oh sorry I meant to ask who is Ayanda Mabulu?
In Zimbabwe, no artist has freedom to challenge Mugabe like Ayanda Mabulu does our president. Viva freedom of expression.
There's a reserve on Ayanda Mabulu's controversial painting of President Zuma. Gallery mum on who's paying R75 000 for artwork.
Brett Murray draws a subtle pic of Zuma's genitals (shock and disrespect), Ayanda Mabulu painting is explicit (no outcry)
So Ayanda Mabulu says she has always drawn male genitalia? O_o

Fransman's comment to Ayanda Mabulu is racist and he needs to be removed as the provincial leader of the ANC!
Ayanda Mabulu and cronies are truly out of order. I failed to understand how a nude painting will address anything at all.

Art can liberate human beings from the psychological tortures of capitalism, not political difference. Shame on you Ayanda Mabulu & Brett Murray for painting incorrect road marks for upcoming artists in our country.
Ayanda Mabulu's painting Umshini Wam with JZ exposed went on display at the AVA Gallery in Cape Town on Monday night
Marius Fransman says Ayanda Mabulu's painting is worse than Brett Murray's The Spear because it's not original...
Except that Ayanda Mabulu's Umshini Wam was reported on @ the height of the Brett Murray Spear saga, and existed b4 The Spear
2. Speaking to controversial artist Ayanda Mabulu about his ZUMA painting! Is this another Brett Murray Saga?
Ayanda Mabulu's Umshini Wam and Brett Murray's The Spear.JZ is a very interesting subject for the artists.
Hehe...so,Ayanda Mabulu is the new Brett Murray...ai no,I'm also going into arts,I want to have my turn at attacking the honourable President leading this ungovernable country...!
First it wz Brett Murray now its Ayanda Mabulu, wenzen kangaka uMongameli?
Brett Murray was called a racist but Ayanda Mabulu's is called an attention seeker...does this expose the racist within us.
Brett Murray was labelled a 'racist' while Ayanda Mabulu is labelled an 'attention seeker'.Why are they labelled differently for the same deed?
Ayanda Mabulu is one confused artist. He raises serious concerns that we are facing as a country when he talks, but his painting has nothing to do with what he says. He saw how much publicity Brett Murray received, now he is looking for cheap publicity. I hope they don't even mention his painting in the news.

Why hasn't Ayanda Mabulu's 'Umshini Wam' not made as big a uproar as Brett Murray's 'The Spear'?
Find it extremely interesting that artist Ayanda Mabulu's not trending, but Brett Murray & Zapiro were trending in a matter of minutes
Those who said Brett Murray's Spear of the Nation was racist, what are they saying about Ayanda Mabulu's Umshini Wam now?
Ayanda Mabulu's gets R75 000 for his Zuma naked painting, then Brett Murray deserves his fair share too.
But those saying Ayanda Mabulu copied Brett Murray: in fact he has painted JZ's crutched genitalia before + Tutu's as well. Just saying.
Ayanda Mabulu depicted with his genitals exposed. Dont tel the folk that accused Brett Murray of being racist, their heads wil explode
Good morning, so a CT chick Ayanda Mabulu decided to copycat Brett Murray's art with The Spear with Umshini Wam' - so boring!
Ayanda Mabulu is the artist who painted "Umshini Wam". Good luck flashing the race card for those constantly in ...
I have seen da pic.Ayanda Mabulu's 'mshini' is bigger than Brett Murray's one
I don't know if you've read this, Ayanda Mabulu vs Brett Murray | Imfundo Eastern Cape , take a peak.
If Brett Murray is racist purely based on the depiction of Mr. Zuma's smear (previously know as spear), why can't we say the same with Ayanda Mabulu?
So this is another artist depicting South African President Zuma and friends. This was done ages ago. The question is why was this painting not made a fuss of. This painting was featured in a prominent commercial magazine too. Painting by Ayanda Mabulu.
Preconceptions about black vs white art in SA: Ayanda Mabulu vs Brett Murray
"Why was there no outcry when Ayanda Mabulu did it?" ->
Public office comes with pros en cons , u cant b selective and only accept de positives, yes de painting was too below de belt for me but the question is What inspired Murray Brett to make the portrait? Ayanda Mabulu once drew Zuma with de genitals out, but de was never this uproar , why ? Is because it was a black person? I DIDNT LIKE MURRAYS PAINTING BUT I DID LIKE ZAPIROS ON SUNDAY TIMES . ZUMA MUST START BEHAVING LIKE A LEADER NOT LIKE SOME HORNY LUNATIC !. i have thought of sleeping with some girl but for morals i haven’t does that mean i slept with them?.so u can stop in boxing me
Hey, I could really get into this "Art" thing ! Brett Murray opened my eyes. Lets see if Ayanda Mabulu is as revered.
The scene in Ayanda Mabulu's painting: in a room is a naked Desmond Tutu coddled by a clothed white clergyman; looking on is a nude and crippled Zuma, and in the background is Mandela with his eyes closed by the hands of a white military man. My conclusion is that Brett and Ayanda are true artists. Viva to their spirit
I find the presidency's reaction on the Brett Murray and Ayanda Mabulu paintings of the president's exposed genitalia laughable and far more appaling than the claim that the artists' works are. If anything, I think Murray's exhibition in its entirety holds magnitudes of truth as to the capitalist/classist mentality of the ruling elite. The argument that it oversteps the president's right to dignity, is hilarius - have these people noticed that it's a painting, not a portrait? When Jackson Mthembu says it's offensive because 'size' has to be taken into account, I LOL'ed for real...How can the artist possibly know the size of the president's privates? Our government seems to have a selective attention span when it comes to the concept of Ubuntu and what is defined as 'traditionally Afrikan culture'. Ubuntu is applicable in situations when a statement of criticism is being made against government and its policies but it's not applicable when they are strangling the *** out of taxpayers to boost their lavis ...
