Artist Bio

Frans Botha 

 

I was born in Durban Kwa Zulu Natal and currently stay in Pretoria South Africa. I developed a passion for art at an early age as I had the privilege of special art classes.

I developed my art systematically since then,- as I grew older I grew even fonder of my passion for art, I had the privilege to attend Lyceum College at the age of seventeen, this to me was everything I had the chance to show people what I see, what I experienced what I believed in.

As you go through my art pieces you will see it seems as if I switch dimensions, not one of my paintings resembles another. I have the ability to not only paint but draw and craft whatever is asked of me, as soon as you set an idea free on canvas it seems as if it starts flowing by itself and comes to life.

In South Africa a lot of things have changed, our Steam locomotives were banned. I decided my art will resemble everything our country use to stand for.

Our country not only had the beautiful steam trains but also the most amazing wildlife, I see it as my duty to let our country live on and stay alive within my art for all our children and other nations to see.

My artwork is affordable and in such a brought spectrum it would be difficult for you not to find a piece your heart desires and absolutely fall in love with it.
