Leon Botha

Leon Botha, best known as the opening DJ for Die Antwoord and inspiring painter, passed away yesterday ultimately from heart failure.  He had progeria, a rare medical condition that produces rapid aging from childhood.  Leon’s work was heavily influenced by the Samurai tradition, which he studied.  He died the day after his 26th birthday, making him one of the oldest people to live with the disease.  Check out this video from Spindle mag highlighting his DJ skills.
