Granville Engelbrecht

 

Granville is a hugely talented, new young, self-taught artist living and painting in Cape Town.

His body of work – Through the eyes of a Child – represents the life he witnesses each day on the Cape Flats. Reality Series – is a continuation of that theme.

His very delicate and skilled charcoal and chalk drawings, represent his artist’s view of the social ills that torment this society; absent parents, abuse, alcoholism, drugs, gangsterism and fatherless families.

The over painted “stick figure” drawings are the same scenes, through the eyes of the child portrayed in each image. A simplicity and honesty that is not always readily seen by outsiders.
