Derric van Rensburg, an internationally acclaimed artist renowned for his exquisite impressionist paintings, holds a prominent position among South Africa’s elite artistic talents. His fame rests on his vibrant portrayals of landscapes, particularly the picturesque vineyards of the Western Cape, abstract depictions of wildlife, and his masterful use of bright acrylic colors.
Starting from humble beginnings, Derric has risen to become a stalwart in both the local and international art scenes. His deep-rooted connection to the natural world, nurtured since childhood, serves as a wellspring of inspiration. Drawing from the bountiful beauty found in the African landscape and the diverse array of people, animals, and plants that inhabit it, this versatile and prolific artist delights audiences worldwide. His bold brushwork and occasional forays into abstraction, infused with his innate impressionist talent, consistently capture the true aesthetic essence of this rugged continent.
Derric’s artistic journey began at the age of ten when he completed his first pencil drawing. From there, his career traversed the realms of the commercial and manufacturing aspects of the creative arts. He progressed to become an art educator before ultimately embarking on his professional artistic path in 1986. He has not only shared his expertise by teaching art as a profession but has also enriched the art community through numerous workshops and private tutorials conducted across the country.
Derric’s work has graced exhibitions in South Africa, Portugal, England, Germany, Italy, and Australia. Many of his commissions are sought after by multinational corporate clients and some of South Africa’s most prestigious hotels.
