My art is based on the everyday events of the Township and Rural areas we live and grew up in. The idea is to paint a single picture with multiple events, having vibrant colours and at the same time depict humor. The is a story to tell about every stone, plant, building and mountain so if you do not know township life, I will recommend you learn the culture through acquiring one or more of my artworks.
My work has been relevant for almost 20 years and I will never fear the loss of relevance unless I have painted that all the “never ending” stories which happen in all townships across the country. Some of my work is inspired by simple conversations I have with the elderly and most of these stories are amusing. I trust that you will love the painting I am prepared to offer you.
The visual arts are art forms such as ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, design, crafts, photography, video, filmmaking, and architecture. Many artistic disciplines (performing arts, conceptual art, textile arts) involve aspects of the visual arts as well as arts of other types. Also included within the visual arts are the applied arts such as industrial design, graphic design, fashion design, interior design and decorative art.
Current usage of the term “visual arts” includes fine art as well as the applied, decorative arts and crafts, but this was not always the case. Before the Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain and elsewhere at the turn of the 20th century, the term ‘artist’ was often restricted to a person working in the fine arts (such as painting, sculpture, or printmaking) and not the handicraft, craft, or applied art media. The distinction was emphasized by artists of the Arts and Crafts Movement, who valued vernacular art forms as much as high forms. Art schools made a distinction between the fine arts and the crafts, maintaining that a craftsperson could not be considered a practitioner of the arts.
