The internet has been lighting up over the past few days with tributes following the sad passing of Nelson Mandela.
One of the great icons of our age, Mandela has defined a generation and for many artists and art lovers, there is no better way of paying tribute than by remembering him in art.
So for a gallery of some of the best art tributes around have a look below. Most of these have been taken from social media feeds and show the varied ways in which Nelson Mandela has been remembered by artists around the world. It is perhaps instructive to reflect on the importance of the man and just how often he is represented in art not just now at this time, but throughout his life and no doubt beyond. Surely the mark of a true icon and a true inspiration.
