Artist: Taf [Tafadzwa Mukwashi]

203mm x 254mm x 8

Allan Gray Orbis Foundation‘s first cohort of graduating fellows, the Class of 2008, is the 18th portrait of Facing a Century by the artist, Taf [Tafadzwa Mukwashi]. The dichromatic polytich in lamp black and white is an impasto, textured oil painting on eight individual box canvasses.

The Allan Gray Orbis Foundation emerged from Allan W.B. Gray‘s desire to make a sustainable and long-term contribution to Southern Africa and it is supported by the companies founded by him, Allan Gray Limited and Orbis Investment Management.

The vision at the heart of the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation is that ‘in the coming years, there will emerge from diverse communities, a new generation of high impact entrepreneurial leaders. Individuals of passion, integrity and innovation, who will be at the forefront of the continuing economic and social transformation of Southern Africa. These individuals will be ambassadors of the power of initiative, determination and excellence, acting as role models so that more will follow in their pioneering footsteps.’

At the foundation’s inaugural selection camp at the end of 2005, Batandwa Alperstein, Nishant Lalla, Phathiswa Mdladla, Caron Bramwell, Cheryl-Lynn Freeman, Siphesihle Buthelezi, Gerard Govender and Patrick Mann stood out as individuals who would become a part of this generation of entrepreneurs and they became the first Allan Gray Fellows and, later, the graduating class of 2008.

Allan Gray Orbis Foundation has since then offered scholarships and fellowships to over 125 Grade 6 and 12 scholars, and dozens of First Year university students studying towards commerce, science and engineering degrees. CEO, Anthony Farr, hopes that they are ‘going to be remembered as individuals, as Allan Gray Fellows, for their legacies – for the new designs and opportunities they bring to life; the impact that they leave behind, as they infuse their efforts with the energy and transforming power of the entrepreneurial spirit.’

Class of 2008, thank you for becoming a part of this Journey!
[Many thanks to Sue Marx and Anthony Farr!]
