This stunning painting, entitled 'District Six Street Scene' by Willie Strydom, is a nostalgic look at a lost community. The painting depicts people walking down a street in District Six, a vibrant and diverse neighbourhood in Cape Town that was forcibly demolished in the 1960s under apartheid.

The artist has captured the sense of community and belonging that existed in District Six before it was destroyed. The couple in the painting are enjoying each other's company and the beauty of their surroundings. The viewer can almost feel the warmth of the sun on their skin and smell the sweet scent of flowers in the air.

'District Six Street Scene' is a truly special work of art. It is a painting that will bring you joy for years to come. If you are looking for a painting that will remind you of the importance of community and belonging, then this is the one for you.

Willie Strydom is a rising star in the South African art world. His work is becoming increasingly sought-after, and this painting is sure to appreciate over time

About Artist

Born in Johannesburg in 1951, Willie Strydom loved art and painting from an early age. He would draw, sketch, and paint scenes from his life at primary school. He was convinced his art teacher didn't like him much. "I think it was because I was better than him. I always showed his mistakes to him, and he didn't appreciate that."

He studied Fine Art at the Pretoria Technikon but only started thinking of himself as an artist in his mid-40s after moving to the sub-tropical South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal. "After tech, I went to the army, worked at a bank, for the municipality, for a friend doing technical drawings, and for years doing kitchen cupboard installations."

Since selling seven paintings at his first exhibition at Johannesburg's Zoo Lake in 2000, Strydom's colourful interpretations of South African life have found their way into art galleries and private art collections nationwide and abroad.

Although mainly known for his colourful, expressive landscape art portraying the Highveld and Boland regions, Strydom also loves to portray the haphazard architecture of older suburbs like Cape Town's brightly coloured Bo-Kaap. He is also renowned for his beautiful and colourful vineyard paintings. Strydom's work has travelled to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the USA, Cyprus, the UK and many more.
