National treasure Trevor Noah just scooped up a few Emmy nominations, and now he is interviewing another South African jewel, artist Nelson Makamo.
Nelson is a talented artist whose work has been exhibited and displayed around the world. He is especially known for his depictions of children wearing spectacles.
He also created the cover of the Time Magazine’s Optimists issue, that was released earlier this year.

"Art is worthy of our interrogation and is in fact an antidote for our times," writes @ava, guest-editor of @time’s second special issue devoted to #optimism. "In the issue, we celebrate and suggest ways that one can find inspiration in our present moment through the work of artists who carve a path for us all. Whether a filmmaker or a photographer, an author or an actress, a poet or a painter, these pages are filled with people who use art as a weapon for dynamic optimism."

Nelson announced his appearance on Instagram with the caption, ‘My life’s work is to show the world who we truly are, today was a memorable day. I am an African child with a dream!’ The episode with the interview has not aired yet. We can’t wait to watch.
