Johan Jansen van Vuuren ( Van Vu Art ) - Passionate about Life
Vibrant color finely executed South African acrylic and oil paintings in the finest detail, all are part and parcel of the artwork of Johan van Vuuren. Johan paints a lot for commissions, mainly in oils, but his own works develop as a result of his creative urge. He is sensitive to his environment and that often dictates his subject matter. He grew up in the Northern Cape and moved from Kimberley to Hermanus where he met his wife Linda. Many of his paintings portrayed rural farming scenes and beautiful Western Cape mountains and coastal scenery . They moved to the Southern Cape and seascapes and items associated with the sea, like sailing bouts and lighthouses began to predominate.
He likes drawing in all mediums and varies his work and believe that the talent of painting is a blessing from God.
