About Donald Barnett

Born 1968 Johannesburg South Africa.
Current residence - Cape Town

With an initial start in Johannesburg, art
has been my profession since 1993. I have
worked in a diversity of mediums and subject matter from acrylic to oils, pencil, watercolour,photoshop and photography - basically anything I can use creatively.

Art does not speak to the viewer if the art has
no soul - it merely becomes a pretty picture. I
have taken great care over the years to impart
personal passion into my work. Specific pieces
tend to reflect a particular time in my life and
the changing world around us.
It gives me great joy to know that my work
hangs in homes around the globe.

Education

Education beyond school - just
loads and loads of experience accompanied
with blood, sweat and tears. Sometimes the
bumping of my nose against a brick wall.
Since then everything I have learnt has
been self taught. Constantly looking for new
challenges, each medium becomes another
tool for creativity.,
