Who is the most famous artist in South Africa?

Not me by a long shot. My sister once asked me “Why don’t you just draw things more people would like?” To which I answered, “Because I want to draw things I like.”

South African Artist

I am a South African artist currently living and working in Pretoria, South Africa. Creating what many describe as minimalist art, my art evokes emotions and feelings in the viewer by confronting topics like death, love, lust, and the overall human experience in a world that is evolving technologically much faster than we are able to evolve.

My work has strong illustrative elements and line work that is bold. Inspired by my love for skateboarding, music, and street art, my work often contains symbols and familiar iconography either created by me or that is integrated from my everyday life. I’m excited about my work as a South African contemporary artist, creating works that I want to, while also enjoying collaborations with other artists and commission work that peaks to my interests.

“Design is coming to grips with one’s real lifestyle, one’s real place in the world. Rooms should not be put together for show but to nourish one’s well being.” – Albert Hadley
