A Journey through Africa to the voice of soul
Explore your visions, live your dreams...let them become true.
Do what you wish to do and don’t ask if it’s useful or trendy, if others like it or find it silly.
If you think that something is good for you, then do it, and you will never regret a missed chance.
Follow your inner voice
Together with African artists that I've met during my bicycle journey from Cape Town to London, we've created NALA artworks.
The Artworks, I will show in exhibitions in Europe (preferably London) and other European Metropolis as well as few Cities in Africa.
The Artwork tells the tale of Little NALA, a eight year old South African girl who is following her dreams, to see what's behind the mountains.
She is currently in Nairobi / Kenya after 14.300 kilometers of cycling.
One day, whilst listening to SADE's song, Sally, NALA was brought to life.

Well guys, if you want and if you are in the mood to support me on my tour – be it as messages, as inspirations, as thoughts, as recommendations, as assistance or whatever you can think of, then you are very welcome here.
Just look here once in a while.
André and NALA

NALA and Graffity Ana by Richard Scott
Richard Scott is a very well known international British artist who lives in Cape Town. He refined my 2013 NALA painting with his Grafitty Ana.
I visited Richard in his studio in Cape Town in 2019.
He was immediately enthusiastic about my NALA Project and enhanced my little NALA painting with his art.
This NALA painting is now hanging from
22. October 2020 - 10. January 2021 in the
Zeitz Mocaa Art Museum in Cape Town in a special exhibition. "Home is where Art is"
A Big "Thank you" goes to Andrea Schachler. She helped me so much, that this Painting found the way to the Art Exhibition at Zeitz Mocaa. Thank you, Andrea.
Hello friends of NALA.
You will surely remember the NALA Corona Art artworks by Joan Otieno from Nairobi, Kenya.
With the help of my NALA Project, the Kenyan Artist Joan Otieno sold small NALA artworks for over 400 euros. (40,000 ksh)
Many thanks to the buyers from Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland.
Each sale ensured that everyone had enough rice and beans or corn porridge and vegetables to eat, and the Warembo Wassani Art Center continued to help underprivileged children improve their future.
Unfortunately, these small NALA artworks are still in Kenya and could not yet be sent to Germany due to Corona and high-cost transport costs.
DHL asked for an amount of 300 Euros for 6 kg of recycling art.
If you are flying from Kenya to Germany or Switzerland in the near future, please let me know.
Maybe you can bring the NALA Art package with you.
Thank you for reading.
