Hennie Niemann

Born: 1941, Bloemfontein, South Africa He attended school and university in the same city, here he qualified as a teacher. In 1983 he started a career as a professional artist. His approach is strongly influenced by the character and mood of the subject matter he is portraying. Hennie gets his inspiration from the local environment. He paints farm labourers harvesting wheat or picking fruit, fynbos pickers collecting bouquets of indigenous flowers and fisher folk sorting their catch. These outdoor scenes are depicted in strong sun colours, giving expression to the African sunlight and the buzz of activity. He works mainly in oils and sometimes uses pastels over the oils in mixed media on paper. This creates a softer subtler finish when painting interior scenes. Paintiongs using this technique are some of Hennie’s most beautiful work, portraying his wife and daughter – his two favourite models. His work can be found in various public and private collections.
