Corne Weideman was born in Rustenburg and attended 11 different schools before matriculating in Robertson in the Western Cape. Formerly based in Hartebeespoort, he settled in Pretoria after a stint in Ireland.
His work already reached investment status despite his relatively young age. Adriaan Boshoff was Corne Weideman’s mentor and his inspiration. “The hours we spent talking at the kitchen table when I lived in his house, the discussions always cantering on more than mere lines, light and technique.
No other artist has inspired me to the extent that Adriaan Boshoff has. Like his life my life is dedicated to the endeavour for perfection in my work.”
