The Bob Skinstad Portrait

Bob Skinstad – Springbok Legend

Artist: Taf [Tafadzwa Mukwashi]
Oil on canvas
762mm x 914mm

Springbok Legend, Bob Skinstad is the man in the 4th painting of Facing a Century by the artist Taf [Tafadzwa Mukwashi]. Bob, was born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe in 1976 – about 8 years before Taf was to move and grow up there herself. Very much unlike Taf though, and thankfully for the good of SA Rugby, Bob Skinstad is actually a talented athlete and understands the rules of the game. He has represented South Africa at all levels, was the member of the World Cup winning Springbok squad in 2007 and he captained the Springboks. Bob is also the co-founder of the Bobs for Good foundation, a non-profit organisation, born out of the need to restore dignity and pride to South Africa’s neediest learners by giving them a gift of hope – a pair of quality leather, locally-made school shoes to care for and call their own. And in 2010, Bob got arrested. This oil on canvas painting is of Bob Skinstad serving his jail sentence to raise awareness and support for Bobs for Good – the aim of which was to get South Africans to ‘bail’ him out by coming up with enough money to provide over 5 000 pairs of shoes to under-privileged schoolchildren. Now that is a good try…
