A new mural in London celebrates the life of our beloved Nelson Mandela.

People all over the world considered what they would do to celebrate Nelson Mandela on Mandela Day last week. The artists at Global Street Art decided to put together something that would remind everyone of Madiba’s global relevance.

The Global Street Art project worked on this mural in Camden on the aptly named Mandela Street. The piece is 13 metres high and depicts Madiba laughing joyously. The enormous mural took a total of 12 days to complete using 150 cans of spray paint.
