Artist Ayanda Mabulu has done it again, sparking controversy and debate with his latest painting of President Jacob Zuma.

This time, the artist has painted an explicit portrait of Zuma featuring Nelson Mandela.

Mabulu has previously drawn criticism and support for some of his graphic artwork.

In taking aim at Zuma, a number of Mabulu's works feature the president in revealing or sexually explicit position.

The painting has drawn widespread condemnation, with some people saying he's crossed a line by drawing Madiba in the way he has.

On Thursday afternoon, the conversation about the piece was growing on social media platforms.
