Weekend Breakfast host Africa Melane chats to 63-year-old Capetonian artist Kenny Alexander about the inspiration behind his works of art.
Alexander says that from a young age, he has always had an interest in art. His work includes sketches, drawing paintings and books.
I never went to art school but I always did little drawings, and would use the comic books in newspapers as my personal art book says Alexander.
Alexander says that his work describes his feelings which are influenced by the upsetting things that are happening around him.
