This South African artist is well known for his figurative artwork.
In his traditional artwork he depicts scenes of everyday life from photographs he captures in his surroundings.

" I do not work in a specific style, therefore experimentation is the key. It is important for me to capture a moment to the best of my ability, and this moment I leave up to the viewer to Interpret. I continue to search for new ideas and experiment with new techniques, styles and media. I furthered my scenic experience creating murals, backdrop and faux techniques while working on industrial theming, stage and film projects."

He specializes, collaborates and does commissions in Oil and Acrylic painting, Scenic painting, Drawing, Traditional and Digital Illustration, Digital 2D cut-out and frame by frame Animation.
