A talented young man provided a timely reminder that determination can overcome almost any challenge. Siya Gunya is a young artist and he ran out of paints due to the nationwide lockdown.
However, Siya overcame this obstacle and still managed to produce a breathtaking work of art. The young painter substituted paint with coffee to produce his masterpiece.
Siya took to Facebook and unveiled the beautiful portrait via the #ImStaying group and Legit.ng noted the fantastic reaction.
Josephine Mahlangu said: "Wow, now this is what creativity looks like, amazing."
Antoinette Scott added: "Wow, you are truly talented my bud."
Martin Williams responded: "This is amazing well done and big up brother."
Adele Theron added: "You just my kinda person. Thinking out of the BOX. I've spent years teaching kids to do this (ex creative art teacher). Keep going, you will make this world a better place. Beetroot makes a wonderful colour. You can also mix wood glue and food colouring to make a fantastic paint. Be creative and have loads of fun doing it."
