On a Wim

Beyond his ability to reinvent himself, Wim Botha is what we can compare to as a magician of our time; one who knows how to pull tricks out his sleeves and hat at any given moment. His courageous and daring explorations across many disciplines is what makes him stand out amongst the constantly evolving art market we face today. It is no surprise that his work is celebrated for its meaningful and remarkable craft.

Wim Botha was born in 1974, graduated from the University of Pretoria in 1996, and currently lives in Cape Town. His achievements and honors include best artwork at the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kinstefees in 2001, being named festival artist at the KKNK in 2003, sharing the first annual Tollman award with Churchill Madikida in 2003, and winning Standard Bank Young Artist award in 2005. His work was featured on major international and national exhibitions of African and South African contemporary Art.
