ROELOF ROSSOUW

“Early in 2009 a film agency walked into the Cape Gallery in Cape Town and hired three of my oil paintings. These landscapes of Robertson, Swellendam and Paarl would feature as props in Clint Eastwood’s latest movie ‘’Invictus’’ . When director Clint Eastwood arrived on the set and saw the paintings he was so impressed that he gave instruction to his agents to buy two of the paintings for his personal collection.”

In a world where many are jostling for recognition, the leisure to look at the neighbourhood is refreshing. Rossouw’s paintings are a friendly gesture; the artist invites the viewer to join him in the stroll up a country lane, through a garden park or street and enjoy the fine views.  It is possible to admire the fine architecture of an historic monument, an old wine farm.  Or participate as voyeur on a trip in another land.  Mood changes as the light fluctuates. There is an opportunity to savoir the scene in the bright high key colours of the artist’s palette. (Gail Dorje)

Roelof Rossouw was born in 1957 in the town Benoni.  As a child he had a passion for comic heroes like Tarzan, Cisco Kid, Flash Gordon and Tintin which, with the artists of the sixties, inspired him to draw his own comics. Already at the age of fourteen Roelof started making oil paintings of landscapes and portraits. When he was seventeen, a European art tour opened the doors for his vision to pursue art and travel. He gained a National Diploma in Arts and Design at Wits Technicon that taught him the value of training and not only relying on his raw talent. In April 1882, whilst working for MEDUNSA as a graphic artist and medical illustrator, he discovered modern impressionistic artists such as Ken Howard, Bernard Dunstan, Max Agostini and admired their loose style in painting. Twenty years later, with the inspiration of other artists like Van Gogh, Monet, Sorrolla, Pierneef and Hugo Naudé to name a few, Rossouw succeeded to move away from the tight style of a graphic artist to the painterly, loose style of impressionism, adding his masterly use of light and shade. Rossouw has since established himself as one of South Africa’s foremost impressionist painters and has many solo exhibitions and awards both locally and abroad credited to his name. In 2014 he received the first, second and third prize in the American Art Awards for Human Impressionism.
