He joined the African National Congress in 1944 and was engaged in resistance against the ruling National Party's apartheid policies for many years before being arrested in August 1962. Mandela was incarcerated for over twenty-seven years, during which his reputation as a potent symbol of resistance to the antiapartheid movement grew steadily. Released from prison in 1990, Mandela won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and was inaugurated as the first democratically elected president of South Africa in 1994. He is the author of the international bestseller Long Walk to Freedom. He passed away on 5 December 2013, aged ninety-five. Chris van Wyk was born in Baragwanath Hospital, Soweto in 1957.

Paddy Bouma was born in Cape Town. She taught Lithography and Illustration at the University of Stellenbosch, and has exhibited her work on many occasions.
