Art by Riaan van Zyl

Location: The Yard Restaurant, The Silo District

Since the start of Riaan’s career, he has taken primary inspiration from commonplace, ordinary ideas and his perception of things around him, effectively capturing its fascination and value with a de-constructed eye.  At first glance his work looks abstract and confusing but the results have their own very personal syntax, punctuation and orchestration.  They become almost a performance of movement rather than a standard drawing.

Riaan van Zyl continues to push the boundaries of contemporary art and classical techniques and concepts. He’s last two solo shows, the first in May 2014 in The Hague (Netherlands) and the second Nov 2014 in Cape Town (South Africa) were both exceptionally well received and sold into some of the most prestigious art collections in the world.
