Harry was born in 1961 in Pretoria. He fell in love with art and everything about art at a very early age.
In those early days, Harry was exposed to some painful life events. He could have pursued dark themed art, but instead he chose to see the light and create the world he used to escape to as a child. Harry had no formal training and is grateful that he has learned to paint in his own way. His technique takes you into his wild and whimsical world and his themes can be described as “gesels-kuns” in the Afrikaans language. The best english translation would be that it encourages a chat.
Harry spent 2 years from 2016 to 2018 using The Winelands Art Gallery as his studio. We are proud to represent his beautiful artworks.
