JOEL BERMANO (South African, 1971)
Love Your Friend , 2012
Acrylic on canvas
29-3/4 x 22 inches (75.6 x 55.9 cm)
Signed lower right: Joel '12

Joel Bermano has been described as an artist of innocence and painter of Miracles. His background is as passionate as his paintings, so passionate that in 2011 Nelson Mandela signed one of his paintings named Madiba's Rainbow Nation. Joel is a humanitarian and philanthropist, donating 50% of his gross revenues from all art sales to various charities. He paints with the innocence of a child having lost his entire childhood to severe depression and works to help people who have so little, live better lives.
