Kenny Kunene

Businessman Kenny Kunene has caused a stir on social media posting a picture of himself posing with a painting depicting a naked, sweaty monkey like DA leader Mmusi Maimane as a slave pulling a wagon carrying equally naked Western Cape Premier Helen Zille and the party’s Federal Executive Chairperson James Selfe. The painting is the work of  artist Iven Amali.

Is this art?

DA member of parliament Phumzile van Damme said the painting was in poor taste.

One twitter user Ofhani Rapetswane seems to think there is something wrong with South Africa artists.

Some were quick to point out that when controversial artist Ayanda Mabulu painted South African President Jacob Zuma in a compromising position with Atul Gupta it was deemed as art.

See Ayanda Mabulu’s painting of President Zuma which was equally controversial.
