Value your Art?Do you know the value of your Art?

Riaan van Zyl

South African 1976- 

"I take inspiration from commonplace, ordinary ideas and like to showcase my impression and apprehension of things around me, effectively capturing their context and value with a de-constructed eye. At first glance my work looks abstract and confusing but the results have their own very personal syntax, punctuation and orchestration. They become almost a performance of movement rather than a standard drawing.

I have exhibited internationally and locally in over 33 solo exhibitions and also numerous group exhibitions and hang in some of the most prestigious art collections in the world.

I am very focused on having people look at the everyday things in a different light. I love working in experimental mediums for example old car oil and anthracite. I enjoy the process of making art, the playing with new and old mediums and the concept behind the works as well as the actual exhibiting of the work."
