The day when I was introduced to ERIC LUBISI, will be one of those jewel moments in my life.
LUBISI, the person? What can I say …..? A man, a magnificent artist with a vision to share.
Grateful & humble in his ways, searching, looking & finding the greater meaning of life.
Being Positive is one of his characteristics. Truly an uplifting experience when you find yourself in his presence.
Forthcoming in his attitude towards man, he never shies away: Freely sharing knowledge & wisdom and loving advice for aspiring young artists.
Meeting the man, ERIC has an air of quietness, peace and tranquility. He has the ability to keep everything calm and relaxed. Every time I have leave his presence, I leave with the feeling that I am so fortunate to know this person.
ERIC LUBISI had been through the worst and the best that our country had to offer.
His testimony about his life, experiences and travels would be an excellent subject matter for a book. The world must know what a Great Artist came from African soil.
Like ERIC LUBISI, what I really appreciate, about all ‘my’ artists is that they share- unconditional love & extreme respect for our land, its people and animals.
No judgement will ever come from ERIC LUBISI, whether it is about gender, race or religion.
A free spirit that lives and let live.
Still now in his 70’s he is open to learn and experience life like a young man.
Relentlessly, he is sending his messages through his art.
“Take care of each other and Mother Earth’!
As a huge lover of art I could not wait to show my father the art of ERIC LUBISI.
That night Adriaan Boshoff said: “Now this a true ‘Expressionistic-Surrealist’ South Africa can boast about, very hard to find these days”.
He has been called:
’CUSTODIAN AND CURATOR’
Of all aspirations of life and culture
’LAST MAN STANDING’
Protector of hopes, dreams and wishes.
ERIC’S art instills a respect in us for MOTHER-EARTH and all of her creatures.
With his vibrant colors of Africa he paints from his spirit. He reaches our souls and consciousness in kind ways. (Exactly like the man he is).
ERIC LUBISI’S ART IS A PRAYER AND ENCOURAGEMENT TO THE CONSCIOUS
TO THE AWAKENING OF THE CONSCIOUSNESS.
No man is an island we need each other to make this earth work.

His achievements and contributions to Art was & still is quite outstanding and acknowledgement was due).
