The South African Portrait Society was created with the main purpose to enhance "Fine Art Portraiture" in South Africa. The Society's vision is to create a national platform where South African Artists can compete, learn and get inspired.
I'm rather excited about their Living Portrait Master Competition where the portrait artists in South Africa have the a chance to compete at national level. I have submitted two entries (the maximum permitted) for their 2016-17 competition. See what you think of them: 'William Kentridge' and 'Abe'.
I started my 'journey' with Scraperboard or Scratchboard Art in 1968. Since then I have been working exclusively in this medium.
