David Kuijers

David Kuijers was born in Vanderbijlpark in 1962 of Dutch immigrant parents. He entered the Cape Technikon in 1987 studying Graphic Design. David majored in illustration and received the top student award on graduating. After his studies he freelanced as a designer/illustrator but did not enjoy the restrictions the job imposed on him.

During these years he had some success as an artist but not enough to ensure a living. Some large commissions, along with a sell-out first exhibition enabled him to paint full-time from 1999 onwards. In 2002 a book, entitled ‘David Kuijers Paints the Town’ was published in Cape Town. In 2004 He worked with British Publishers, De Montford Fine Art and was included in their Ultimate Collection of that year.

David currently lives in Greyton with his family. David works in a variety of styles and techniques, broadly separated (by himself) into 4 categories according to the techniques employed. There are, however, more strong stylistic variations within these categories.

It is difficult to categorise the work, as there are various distinct styles; “I have a head full of reasons for making art – being able to work in many styles and mediums allows for greater freedom of expression.”

We also have a selection of David’s prints in the gallery.
