Heroes and Monochrome Dreams, an exhibition by artist, Anthony de Klerk, opens at the Luni Art Gallery on 5 July.
“As an artist I had been experimenting and searching for a unique style that I could identify with and that would identify me” explains Anthony de Klerk. “Then In 2017, on my way home after an inspiring visit to Greece, I had the strong sense that my life was about to change. When I arrived back in Cape Town I started to see, in my mind’s eye, very strong images of dreamlike portraits and figures, in a style that came to me as if by divine intervention.
Then, young faces started finding me, literally and figuratively. I began to meet new people from around Africa who moved me, and I felt compelled to tell their stories. These are the faces of my latest series, “Dreamers, Heroes and Monochrome Dreams”.
This exciting and ongoing new body of work will follow me into the future, and buyers into their homes and offices around the world.”
