Featuring inspiring designs from young artists and designers in our programs, THE LALELA SCARF is a beautiful way to show your support for life-changing art. 100% of the proceeds from each sale goes towards helping young innovators find their voice and overcome the narrative of poverty through the transformative power of arts education.
This artwork was inspired by South African artist Jody Paulsen. Lalela learners created colorful pop inspired collages that represent their generation. The artists looked at iconography from popular culture such as branding, packaging, logos and slogans and re-interpreted them to create a simple pattern that represents youth culture.
Madeline, the 14 year old artist, lives in the Hangberg community in Hout Bay, Western Cape. She is a quiet young girl who has used her creativity at Lalela as a means of self expression. The confidence Madeline gained through her mastery in art has translated into her everyday life.
