Ted Hoefsloot

About the Artist

Born: 1930 - 2013 Amsterdam, Holland

Growing up in Amsterdam, following his years as a scholar, Ted Hoefsloot went on study art at the Amsterdamse Grafische School where he majored in lithography, layout, advance drawing and silk screening.

A short while after completing his studies, Ted decided to visit South Africa – for a five year artistic tour of its vast, complex and varying landscapes. Travelling through the country on the back of a motorcycle over this period, Ted was so inspired and overwhelmed by South Africa’s natural beauty – the vast spaces, majestic mountain ranges, the bushveld and the wildlife – that 53 years later he was still finding himself calling South Africa home.
