Owner and artist, 25 year old Jurgens van der Walt is a self-taught illustrator with an genuine glint in his eyes.

He had spent a few years dabbling in various trades, including a stint in joinery working for the renowned South African furniture design genius, David Krynauw. He drew a great deal of inspiration from this and other creative landscapes and before long his innate love for illustration and design was cemented. He knew that this was what he wanted to do with his life.

Many of his illustrations convey rather powerful messages, and while many depict his own personal reflections, others flirt with various social issues. Then there are some which are just bright, bold and funky.

One of the techniques he uses, which he dubs “a thousand lines”, he undertook as a way to slow down, be mindful and to be in the ’moment’.
