Belfield said they were looking forward to more exhibitions as part of promoting the country’s artists.

She said visual artists needed to be given the platform to show their talents and called upon people to give them support by buying their works.

Belfield said the exhibition will run until early December and that people have a chance to sample the artworks but also buy them.

Malamulo is the founder of Nthililo Studios Art Gallery and School and was also decorated with an award in July for his tremendous work in arts by Rainseekers in Education Conservatoire which is spearheaded by former deputy director of culture Bernard Kwilimbe.

Levison is Malamulo’s student and has grown his base in the world of arts creating amazing artworks.

With his art skills, he was one of the judges during the Toyota Malawi Children’s Art contest.

During the opening of the exhibition, Malamulo and Levison told stories of how they started.

Levison said he started as a bricklayer before a spirit of creativity moved him to pursue art professionally.

Maison de la France also officially opened its library with both French and English books on sale, as well as CDs and jewelry.

Children were also given a chance to show their talent during the opening of the exhibition through the Kid’s corner.
