Despite discovering his talent at a young age, visual artist Atang Ramorwa also known as Mrlefthand did not have the passion to pursue art as a career. This was not up until he saw the great work of one of Botswana’s revered visual artists, Martin Sefako, which eventually inspired him to venture into art without thinking twice.

Upon seeing Martin Sefako’s work, Ramorwa says he instantly felt the burning urge to pursue art and was motivated to pick his brushes and pencils to express his talent. He tells Arts&Culture that whilst most artists do art out of passion, it took inspiration from a fellow artist to do art because it was not something that he ever took seriously.

Ramorwa stated that he would forever remain grateful to Martin Sefako for inspiring him to ‘find himself’. “I did not really take my art talent very seriously at first nor believe in it until I saw Martin Sefako’s work on social media and from there I was really inspired to start practicing art and come up with portraits. I have never met (Martin) Sefako in life but I was inspired by his breathtaking artwork on social media. And I will forever remain indebted to him for that exactly,” he said.
