Frans Groenewald

Frans studied at the University of Stellenbosch (South Africa) where he obtained his BA.FA (Graphic Design) and BA.FA (Photography) with distinction.

Since his entry into the art arena in 2002, he has enjoyed widespread public interest and support, with national exposure in the printed media and on television.

His work is characterised by witty word play, fresh colour usage and unique characters such as Basil the chef and his freerange chicken, Benedict. Titles form an integral part of his work.

“The goal is to put a smile in the heart & mind of the viewer. The engaging artworks are both entertaining & decorative. I call them DECOTAINMENTS.”

Unlike his images, He is actually quite a normal person but a clueless cook… He is married to Grace and they have two wonderful sons, Joshua and Thomas. They live in Somerset West, Cape Winelands, South Africa.
