Selwyn Pekeur – A True Artistic Talent, A Great Man!

At an event in the Winelands last night I had the great pleasure of seeing my dear and much loved friend and Artist Selwyn Pekeur from Paarl. The above is a fabulous self-portrait of him with Madiba.

His distinctive style is very recognisable. A full time artist since June 1998 Selwyn began his career as a teacher and soon became convenor of the schools art project organising workshops and exhibitions for children’s art and young artists, which he later expanded to include the promotion of arts in his local community.

In his words – “He chooses to explore humour as a force to bridge the cultural divide rather than redefine the fault lines that have separated the Cape communities of the past. Laughter heals. The viewer becomes a voyeur observing an intimate moment of family life on a sultry afternoon in a township home. Black is beautiful in his vision. His women are great inflated fantasies, titillating and festooned in colourful frippery.”
