The Kaelan Thomas Staschen Portrait

Kaelan Thomas Staschen

Artist: Taf [Tafadzwa Mukwashi]
Oil on canvas
508mm x 406mm

The 11th oil painting of Facing a Century by the artist Taf [Tafadzwa Mukwashi] is of the 1 and a half years young Kaelan Thomas Staschen, Louise Pearson and Greg Staschen‘s son.

Kaelan’s mother, Louise, was born in Cape Town and has spent the last decade in the UK. “I have the intention of moving back as I miss home so much. It’s inexplicable… Africa is in your blood and the longer you stay away, the more it tries to pull you home. We took Kaelan to visit family this Christmas and he loved it… so I guess the point of me wanting to do this [the portrait] is for my son to have some visual connection to my home and what will be his home in the future. Africa is a part of me and a part of him.”
While on African soil, Kaelan discovered The Strawberry Bush. He would stealthily make his way outside to the bush, and triumphantly eat strawberries straight from it. Kaelan’s moment in Facing a Century is one of the innocent mischief of this time and the tell-tale red stains are evidence of his strawberry feast.
You need only to look into this child’s captivating eyes to realize that a world of endless possibilities awaits him. We can all learn something from Kaelan and his moment – to love and be loved is a great thing, always trust enough for your beautiful soul to always shine through in your eyes, and don’t waste an inch of life – eat strawberries from the very beginning and make sure you never stop.

Thank you, Kaelan, for joining the Journey and Facing a Century.
