Cornelius was born in 1956 and studied at the Technicon of Pretoria. He worked as a freelance graphic artist for a few years and decided to make painting his career. As a true South African artist, Cornelius Bosch drew his inspiration from his country and its history.
Bosch’s work is indeed varied, vibrantly dramatic bowls of flowers, classical landscapes and abstract – contemporary artwork entitled “Industrial Cathedral’s, the Glass Boat and Confrontation” are just some of the subjects which speak unanimously about this artist’s talent.
Bosch embraces warmth and texture and his play with multiple layers of translucent colour and the effect of light is highly individual. This artist was able to vary his work between intricate detail and bold expression. According to Bosch South African art is in a new phase following public awareness of culture in general. Art lovers around the country appreciate and invest in Bosch’s artwork, because they leave an everlasting presence. Bosch was prolific but also highly disciplined. For 17 years he established himself as a serious artist and his work has stood the test of time; every other type of recognition comes second. It is this perseverance and dedication that has made Bosch paintings a highly desirable object for collectors and investors alike. Cornelius Bosch sadly passed away in March 2011 at the young age of 55.
