  • Earlier representatives of the Township Art Movement. He works in charcoal, inks, watercolor and oils but is best known for his oils. He draws his subject matter from daily life in the townships – the hustle and bustle of street scenes, women shopping, youngsters making music. He portrays these scenes in a vigorous and bold manner. There is a great deal of abstraction and simplicity in his compositions.
