Jaco van Schalkwyk

 

Atmosphere is central to Jaco van Schalkwyk's paintings.  The theatrical play of light and shadow is more important to him than the subject matter.  He finds inspiration in his South African surroundings and especially wild and domesticated animals. By creating a sense of movement, he endeavours to portray the character and mood of the subject matter.

 

Jaco has taken part in numerous group exhibitions in South Africa and abroad and is represented in several collections.

 

At present, the artist is working with renowned artist, Marie Vermeulen-Breedt, while studying his Bachelor's degree in Art History at the University of South Africa.
