South African Artist, Frans Groenewald
He studied at the University of Stellenbosch (South Africa) where he obtained his BA.FA (Graphic Design) and BA.FA (Photography) with distinction. Since his entry into the art arena in 2002, his imaginative paintings have enjoyed widespread public interest and support, with national exposure in the printed media and on television. His work is characterised by unusual word play, fresh colour usage and unique characters such as Basil the chef and his freerange chicken, Benedict. Titles form an integral part of his paintings.
