Art du Cap Gallery on Sanlam Arts Round Up

by | Mar 15, 2024 | Featured | 0 comments

Meet Anthony de Klerk, artist and owner of Art du Cap, located in the colourful and historic district of Bo-Kaap, which he talks about on the Sanlam Arts Round Up this week on Fine Music Radio.

Listen to the Sanlam Arts Round Up on Fine Music Radio FMR 101.3fm on Fridays at 17h30

Anthony begins by focusing on the special location and the people of the Bo-Kaap. It’s an absolute privilege for the galley to be set in  this awesome community. One has the sense of  being in a small village in the middle of a city. People add a lot of  colour to the environment.

Art du Cap is an artist owned gallery, and predominantly features his own work and that of his daughter Bianca who focuses on the flora and fauna of the Cape.

The gallery gives him the opportunity to do his own thing. Currently he is working on two themes. The first is ‘Dreamers and Heroes’ – the theme of an exhibition he had in 2028. He has continued on these portraits of young people who inspire him with their incredible vision for these times despite the difficult circumstances some may find themselves in. He is also focusing on the heroes that fought the struggle and paved the way for these young people.

The other series is of  Cape Town based paintings to capture the Cape landscape and special spots in and around  the city at special times of the day. The lead photo above is Chiappini Street, where the gallery is located.

Art du Cap gallery is one of the gems that you will discover on your visit to the colourful district of Bo-Kaap in Cape Town.
