“I felt excited and proud of the work I put into my proposal,” Mohau Modisakeng said upon hearing the news that his design beat out 14 others to create the Nelson Mandela monument in Amsterdam Zuidoost.

Two weeks ago, Modisakeng, a 33-year-old artist from South Africa, was announced as the winner of the Amsterdam Nelson Mandela Memorial design competition. The Center for Visual Arts (CBK) supervised the competition on behalf of the city's southeastern borough, and selected the eventual winner from three finalists.
