About the creator of the Tafula Pencil Brush:
It all started when I was 15.
Unlike most boys I didn’t play soccer on the streets, all I did was drawing.
My first realistic portrait came out surprisingly stunning and amazing specially to my mother’s eyes! I never imagined that I would make a living out of it.
I am Samuel Tafula, a Mozambican who came to South Africa in the 90’s looking for any form of employment. Moving from pillar to post looking for a job wasn’t easy, I finally decided to expose my artistic work from the street corners of Johannesburg CBD. Later I moved to different shopping centers where my unique artistic skills attracted a lot of attention.
I traveled to England doing research on how to improve my artwork, it was then, returning to South Africa that I invented the TAFULA PENCIL BRUSH which is sold online and in some art shops in South Africa. The TAFULA PENCIL BRUSH is designed to save time and improve the quality and beauty of drawings.
I am currently based in Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton City, Johannesburg, South Africa.
Yours sincerely Samuel Tafula.
