JoziFolk - images of everyday life in South Africa


"I started drawing before I even went to school and have never had a lesson in my life.

"The idea that you can become rich from soccer but not art is nonsense. I can work in any medium but chose to work with pencil and paper because canvases are expensive and oils take a long time to dry.

"It's difficult to get rich if you expect galleries to sell your work. You need to interact directly with the public who are your clients.

"I can do four small drawings per day and, for the past 23 years, have made a very good living doing this. It's actually allowed me to set up other successful businesses." (140649)
