Inspiring! 80-Year-Old Ndebele Artist Esther Mahlangu Teams Up With John Legend & BMW


Esther Mahlangu is ‘killing it’ even at 80. The new individual BMW 7 Series has been transformed into an amazing African inspired work of art all thanks to the hard work of the South African Ndebele artist.


Esther recently teamed up with BMW to bring this project to life Apparently, the vehicle will be on display at Frieze Art Fair in London from 5 – 9 October 2016. The vehicle will then be auctioned and all the proceeds would go to charity.


This is not the first time Esther has worked closely with BMW. Twenty-Five (25) years ago, Mahlangu was the first woman to create the artwork on a BMW 525i Sedan.



If you thought Esther was done slaying well guess you are wrong, The Ndebele artist is also helping to fight against HIV/AIDS.  She recently joined forces with Grammy Award-winning singer and brand ambassador for Belvedere; John Legend to design the brand’s limited edition bottles where 50% of the proceeds from the sale would go HIV/AIDS victims
