Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, artist Ray Berman fled his home country for Swaziland in 1966 in a self-imposed voluntary exile when Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. There he became an architect and eventually a painter, immersing himself in Swazi tradition and culture and gaining insight into a central approach to art in Africa: no one creates anything by themselves, but must submit to the voices of ancestors, listen to the spirits and allow them to work through each artist.
