About Gerhard van Vuuren
Meet acclaimed South African Artist; Gerhard van Vuuren, and purchase your ideal painting directly from him. Gerhard has exhibited his work extensively, both locally and internationally. His artistic practice includes drawing and painting as well as murals and painted furniture. The majority of his painting resembles that of the Old Masters. He uses elements from such paintings as resource material to juxtapose old with the new. These elements of today's living are a medium to convey ideals represented within a global context of cultural elitism. His figure studies, mostly finished in triptique, capture light and shade in a very emotional and exciting mix. Elegant, refined and sensual are some of the adjectives used to define the yielding atmosphere captured by Gerhard in his work. Although the female form is the main motive of his work, male studies are captured equally well. His works reflect a very special aesthetics and a style completely his own.
