Kobus Walker

Biography

Kobus Walker was born in Rustenburg in 1971. He matriculated in 1989 and studied at the Pretoria Technikon where he completed a Fine Arts diploma in 1992.

He thereafter worked with fellow artist and mentor Tivan van Dyk for almost 10 years. They worked on different projects, including murals at Ceaser’s Casino, in London and in Egypt.

He has been working as a full-time artist since 2007, and is now based in Pretoria.

Inspiration

He takes inspiration from SA landscape artists Pierneef and Tretchikoff. He takes these influences and remoulds them to his own indigenous statement in a contemporary context. His medium is oil on wood which is applied in thin layers of paint. The use of earthy colours and stipple technique shows the influence of Neo-Impressionism, where the use of small dashes of paint refers to pointillism.
