African Artist

Kimathi Donkor

Kimathi Donkor was born in Bournemouth, England in 1965. He grew up in the UK and Zambia and lives and works in London. He received his PGCE from Goldsmiths in 1992 and his BA Hons in Fine Art (also from Goldsmiths) in 1987.

In 2004, 'Caribbean Passion: Haiti 1804', his first solo show for more than a decade, was held to observe the bicentenary of Haiti's independence. Then, in 2005, another series of large-scale oil paintings: 'Fall Uprising' marked the 20th anniversary of the 1985 urban conflicts in London.

2008 saw Donkor curate 'Hawkins & Co', an exhibition of more than 70 art works by 15 artists, at the Contemporary Urban Centre in Liverpool. He also opened his first exhibition outside England, bringing paintings created on the reverse of mass-produced canvases to Armagh, Northern Ireland.

Sprite advert-update

The following statement was released by the Director

My name is Max Isaacson, I directed and produced the fake Sprite ads that have been making the rounds over the past five days. There have been quite a lot of false statements made regarding these and I would like to make a few things very clear about these spots. First, there was no involvement from either The Coca-Cola Company or Greencard Pictures. Second, this was not supposed to be taken seriously by anybody. They were made completely on spec, which was clearly stated on the YouTube pages on which the ads were primarily seen. I paid for, produced and directed both spots independently. I am frankly quite surprised that spots of this nature were so quickly and easily believed to be legitimate. I hope that all parties involved will understand that this was a simple mistake that went much too far too fast, and that it is now made clear that these were not real commercials, nor were they ever produced with intention of being taken as such.

Racist Transformers

The new Transformers which I have not seen and now will not see. Have two characters by the name of "Mudflaps" and "Skids", they claim to not do much reading, gold tooth wearing etc. Playing on the "urban stereotype" according to some black people and of course white this is not racist..

Lets see the people behind the voices

Reno Wilson and Tom Kenny
