Derric van Rensburg

Derric van Rensburg, internationally known for his superb impressionist paintings, is widely rated as one of South Africa's top artists. He is well known for his colourful landscapes, the vineyards of the Western Cape, female figures, abstract wildlife and the use of bright acrylic colours in these paintings.

Following humble beginnings, Derric has emerged as one of the true heavyweights of the local and international art scenes. Having always felt a profound connection to the natural environment since early childhood, this versatile and prolific artist draws his inspiration from the abundant beauty found in the African landscape, as well as the rich variety of people, fauna and flora inhabiting it. To the delight of audiences at home and abroad, his broad brush strokes and sometimes abstract visual intensity, coupled with ingenious impressionist flair, continues to capture the true aesthetic essence of this rugged continent. It all started at the age of ten when he completed his first pencil drawing, and his career later followed the commercial and manufacturing world of the creative arts. He progressed to teaching art before becoming a professional artist in 1986.He has contributed richly to the development of emerging artists in South Africa, not only through teaching art as a profession, but also through numerous workshops and private tutorials across the country.

Derric's first exhibition was held in 1978 in Cape Town and was sold out within a few days. Since then he has exhibited many times in South Africa and also in Portugal, England, Italy, Australia and Germany. Most of his commissions are placed by multinational corporate clients, which include First National Bank, South African Airways, Transnet, Liberty Life, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Reebok, Ernst & Young, Alexander Forbes, BP and Mobil, as well as a number of South Africa's best known hotels.

His work is represented by selected top galleries throughout South Africa and abroad, and many of his paintings hang in homes and major corporate companies in Australia, England, Singapore, Switzerland, Portugal, Germany and Italy.

To celebrate his 55th birthday in 2007, a beautiful, full colour coffee table book of 200 pages containing more than 170 images of Derric's superb art, were published.

Derric van Rensburg said the following about this book: To have fifty-five years of one's life represented in a beautiful book is probably something that most people would consider an incredible achievement, and so do I. Yet, I find myself wondering and thinking back on how it all came about. Like every other person, I have not lived my life in isolation. The various experiences that are written about and portrayed in this book have shaped me, the way I see life and fundamentally how I paint.

"There are artists who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others who, thanks to their creativity and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun."Pablo Picasso
