Artist - Johan De Waal











1.Hi Johan, Welcome to NasieInspirasie!
Please tell us a bit about yourself and how you discovered your passion for art?

Art has always been in my family. My mother is an Art and design teacher, and she has always encouraged me to keep experimenting with different materials and mediums while at school. My Grandparents were also art collectors and I was exposed to famous South African artists works from a young age.

2. What Mediums do you enjoy using most?
My medium of choice is charcoal. I love sketching and one will notice it is the foundation of most of my works. I combine the charcoal with acrylics, ink and pastels.

3. Where can we see/find more of your work?

I don't exhibit currently and sell my work online mostly. I have an online shop at http://saatchiart.com/ My work can also be viewed on www.facebook.com/pages/Art-Wall/624977197558620?ref=hl.

4. NasieInspirasie is all about Inspiring people to give what they've got, no matter how small the contribution, it can make a big difference. ("a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.")...
What or Who inspires you?


I would say my main inspiration is nature. I live on a farm and enjoy the outdoors.
Artists who inspire me are, William Kentridge, Lionel Smith, Peter Pharoah and Ryan Hewett.


5. Please share a story behind one of your artworks

I have only been actively painting the past 4 years, so it's all still a learning curve for me. Experimenting with different mediums, materials and subject matter. While working on a specific piece, I had a breakthrough and it is where I discovered which combinations of materials worked for me and which style I was comfortable with. This piece is close to my heart and basically where it all started.

THE ROAR

Dis lanklaas wat 'n fliek my so opgewonde gehad het dat ek my man wil afvlieg om die uitsending in George te gaan kyk. Die fliek waarvan ek praat is THE ROAR, 'n Frans Cronjé film, wat ek onlangs in Pretoria met die vertoning daar gaan kyk het vir resensie doeleindes. Die film stem so wonderlik ooreen met Nasie se leuse en hartklop...
Die hele fliek gaan daaroor om uit te vind wat jou lewensdoel is, dit raak te sien en om dit te bereik. Spreker, Gustav Gous was ook daar gewees. Hy praat gereeld oor lewensdoel en sy insprake was vir my baie spesiaal gewees. Hy het gesê mense dink hulle het net een doel, maar ons het eintlik ten minste 9 doele wat God vir ons elkeen uniek gemaak/gegee het. Dit was vir my 'n baie lekker ervaring en veral om te sien hoe opgewonde Frans Cronjé is oor hierdie film!
The Roar vorm deel van 3 verskillende films onder die Purpose Campaign. 6 Below wys reeds by lokette, The Roar en Victor is die ander twee en word die 2de Maart en die 13de April bekend…

Hennie Meyer Ceramics

Hennie Meyer is 'n keramiek kunstenaar van Kaapstad. Sy klei-kunswerke wek kalmte, nuuskierigheid en bewondering. 


1.Wanneer het jy jou passie om met klei/keramiek as medium te werk ontdek?
Ek is die jaar na matriek as Rotariër uitruilstudent na Australië. Dit was in 1984. Die skool in Australië het geweier om op daardie stadium ’n “wit” Suid Afrikaner in die skool in te neem. Die enigste tersiëre instansie wat bereid was om my te onderrig was die plaaslike technikon en ook net die kunsdepartement! So ek was baie gelukkig om heeltemal toevallig vir ’n jaar lank ’n diploma in keramiek te kon doen. Die medium het my perfek gepas. Ek het teruggekom en kunsonderwys op Stellenbosch studeer. Op Stellenbosch was ’n wonderlike dosent in keramiek, David Steele, wat my liefde vir klei verder aangemoedig en ontwikkel het.

2. Wat inspireer meeste van jou werk?

Die klei self is die sterkste inspirasie. Klei is ’n wonderlike medium. Wanneer ek met die klei werk is ek baie bewus van die proses. Hie…
