Sculpture artist Samuel Alfredo Baloi got a shoutout on social media from Lara Neill for his beautiful artworks, and now his business is growing; we can see why!


Parkhurst, South Africa (17 June 2022) – Samuel Alfredo Baloi from Mozambique has been working as an artist in South Africa, trying to earn a living selling his sculptures on the roadside. Lara Neill recently saw his work in Parkhurst and decided to share it on social media.

Her post has drawn in hundreds of potential new clients for Samuel, who is blown away by the interest he has had since her post earlier this week.

Samuel makes sculptures of everyday life events and paints them in beautiful bright colours. The art pieces pop, and it is easy to see why they are getting so much attention on social media.

“Yesterday I went to Parkhurst and met Samuel Alfredo Baloi Baloi who makes the most wonderful African inspired sculptures of scenes from day to day life! He is currently based along 4th Avenue in Parkhurst and is open to commissions if there is a scene/animal/idea you would like recreated!”
