Vineyard Scene 7

Willie Strydom


This original artwork painting by South African artist Willie Strydom is entitled Vineyard Scene 7. The artwork medium is oil on canvas.

Bold and bright, filled with rich colouration, artist Willie Strydom’s paintings celebrate his expressive talent for the portrayal of majestic Boland wineland and Klein Karoo mountain scenes, vineyards and coastal scenes, and even his love of the haphazard architecture of the Cape Malay Bo Kaap and old District Six.

His colourful artwork interpretations of life have found their way into art galleries and in private art collections across South Africa and abroad.

About the Artist

Born: 1951

The first evidence of any artistic inclination came in Willie's primary school, when he drew anything that tickled his fancy. Art was one of Willie’s subjects in High School, and his first oil painting – a dog resting on a sofa - still hangs in his mother’s room.

After matriculating, he attended art school at Pretoria Technikon, where he studied graphic design and Fine Arts. He was then did his national service before beginning a career as a drawing officer at an engineering firm. During this period, Willie still painted the odd landscape. Willie later moved to the South Coast where he started a kitchen and built-in cupboard factory with his brother. Fifteen years later, Willie finally decided to concentrate on his talent and started painting full time. After this decision, he has become more at peace within himself.
