ARTISTS & PORTFOLIOS

ALEX KRENZ

Alex moves away from the traditional way of representing African forms into an expression of freer forms and looser styles

ANDRE PEYPERS

André's wildlife scenes create the impression of viewing animals through a powerful zoom lens. Details are faithfully captured, often in tightly cropped compositions drawing one's eyes into a visual safari.

CATHY BELL

The landscape began to speak to me and I began to see the patterns and the flow that would make a picture work. I finally understood the importance of fore ground interest, light balance and what holds the eye’s interest in a picture

CHRIS BYRNES

Chris creates unique, one of a kind, works of art incorporating Kangsxi Dynasty porcelain, along with artifacts such as the wood and copper sheathing which he personally salvaged from the wreck of the Oosterlandt, shipwrecked in 1697

FRANK KHAN

Frank khan is best known for his modern contemporary sculpture work.  Self-taught and describing himself as somewhat of an art fundamentalist. He prefers his work to capture powerful social messages as opposed to merely showcasing beauty.

RACHELLE BOMBERG

“Light wrapped in light, darkness wrapped in layer upon layer of darkness. Cover me with your brilliant blackness, so I may burst forth……..and be free.   ………………Every painting is a child I must nurture and allow to grow, and one day have the strength to part with……………

SARA GAQA

Besides her own uniquely blended backgrounds of the German and the Iranian culture, she became very much interested in the African culture and its people when visiting South Africa.  Through her marriage into the Xhosa culture, she was able to gain more insight into the African culture and myths that influence her art.

THEMBELIHLE NGESI

An aspiring artist who was born in the small village of Xhana next to the Chalumna River, he has found solace in creating art which takes him away from worldly challenges.  

THOMAS VAN GYLSWYK

...and so the painting began, and so did the frustration of limited expression.  The only solution was to throw myself into the vast sea of 3D possibility, and so the thrilling life of sculpture began to unfold. This is what now consumes my days, and all-consuming and most fulfilling.

TONY DE FREITAS

“Art satisfies me intellectually, music more emotionally. I wouldn’t shed tears over a painting but over a piece of music, certainly. What I’m doing is playing jazz with paint. Just as a jazz artist may pull together a plethora of apparently random strokes, those random strokes contribute to what the artist sees as the bigger picture”.

WILMA DU TOIT

Wilma studied Fine Art at the University of Pretoria, and after doing her time as a wife and mom, dedicated her life to travelling the world as an artist.
