Jerry Lion Motau
Jerry Lion was born on the third of March 1975 in the Limpopo province of South Africa.
His father, Judah Lion, and his uncle, Julian Motau, were also Artists before they passed away. Jerry discovered his gift at a very early age. Jerry moved to Johannesburg in 2000 due to his love of the vast differences in culture of its people.
Jerry Lion has been commissioned by the South African Post Office to do illustrations for stamps.
Jerry lives and works in Hillbrow - a vibrant part of Johannesburg where he draws most of his inspiration from, recording moments in time about life in and around Johannesburg.
