Fine artist André van Vuuren follows two paths in his subject matter: landscape and the abstract expression of the human condition.
He held his first solo exhibition at The Little Gallery in Johannesburg in 1970, and has since held a further 49 solo exhibitions both locally and abroad, including in Belgium, Germany and England. He has been associated with the Goodman Gallery, the Everard Read Gallery and the Crake Gallery in Johannesburg, and is currently represented by The Gallery in Riebeek Kasteel, Carmel Art in Cape Town and Graham’s Fine Art Gallery in Johannesburg.
André is a graduate of the Johannesburg School of Art and the George Boys’ Visual Arts Research School, where he studied graphic design.
Following the resounding success of the inaugural event in 2016, Solo Studios returns to the Riebeek Valley over the weekend of 11-13 August 2017:
Hosted in and around the towns of Riebeek Kasteel and Riebeek West, Solo Studios is a collaboration between artists, art curators and galleries based in the area, and has been created to provide an opportunity for art collectors to visit artists in their studios to view and purchase their art. Mostly private and reclusive, the artists invite the fraternity into their personal realm for a rare intimate encounter.
A new addition to this year’s offering is the inclusion of resident authors, poets and book illustrators, all represented on one platform in a group exhibition, “The Writers’ Studio”. A highlight of this programme is the opportunity to enjoy breakfast with political commentator Max du Preez and investigative journalist Jacques Pauw.
