'Block 6 Mosque, Gaborone'
Block 6 Mosque, Gaborone' (30×40) - a picture which is an attempt by me to paint and document architecture around the city in which I reside in the form of landscapes, this being a painting of beautiful building in the form of a Mosque in a residential area near where I live. Inspired by many of the landscapes Van Gogh did during his time.
Mother And Child Oils
A Mother and daughter (Oil Painting)' (30×40)- a picture I took recently of a mother and daughter... I was drawn to this image because of the protective stance the mother takes with her child even though she is paying attention to something else... almost as if instinctive. 
Tech Rev
'Tech Rev (Technological Revolution)' - (30*40) An idea i came up with about 4 or 5 years ago during a power cut & I had failed to charge any of my electronics... laptop, tablet and all & I was stranded in the dark without anything to do or read. I realised how reliant on tech humans have become, we've literally become one, dependent on the other for existence... the design is old but I think I managed to work it

Mother And Child
A Mother and Daughter #colours' - a picture I took recently of a mother and daughter... I recently posted the inks and finally got down to giving it some colour, want to paint it soon. Hope you enjoy

Mother And Child Inks
'A Mother and Daughter' - a picture I took recently that I was drawn to because of the protective stance the mother takes with her child even though she is paying attention to something else... almost as if instinctive. I posted the lines of this pic yesterday after that I went over it with some #indiaink

Hi Mbako, We are a design company that design Music CD Covers for entertainment organizations or music productions firms.

we have a client who has a tswana music artist who is bringing out their first Music CD.  they want us to design a cover for this artist.

We found your work on the internet and was wondering if we could use your Tswana Dancer Girl (OIL) for a front cover of the music CD.  We will off course mention your name and a link to your page in the credits on both the production company as well as the artist website and Music CD.

Would you be interested in something like this or have you got another idea.

Please contact us at +27815008888 or at

Randomly found your gallery recently this morning, and I have to say you have some interesting stuff on display, man. I really dig your usage of color, and the overall style is good stuff.

If you'd ever like to talk art,
network, or whatever; let me know. I do have access to skype, aim, msn
messenger, yahoo messenger, etc. I look forward to a chance to hearing
from you.

wow, thats deep... I always take it personal when someone says they like your style... That means they relate to your philosophy. Thanx in spades!

I've never really been a skyper, but m an avid facebook and twitter user, mayb we can link up there. I would love to network and talk art, i love the preposition.
