Swazi artist Ray Berman (b. 1941) uses oil paint on canvas to create abstract landscapes in nuanced color palettes. In 1966, Berman fled South Africa, his home county, for Swaziland in a self-imposed voluntary exile when Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. There he became an architect and eventually a painter. His sensitivity to rhythm and negative space, inspired by a love of improvisational jazz music and architecture, lend his paintings a sense of structured expressionism rendered in rich impasto. His work has been shown in multiple one man shows and various group
exhibitions throughout Swaziland and South Africa and is in several private collections throughout Europe.
