Visit the Hein van Huyssteen Art Gallery

Born in Central Africa in the colonial days, Hein van Huyssteen grew up surrounded by nature, experiencing the wild day by day. The young artist started early at the age of 5 years. By the age of 12 he had won his first competition with his art and was astounding his peers with his talents. After training with a well known artist in the medium of oil, Hein progressed to pastels, mixed media, inks and very soon onto water colours and acrylics.

The complexity of this medium is what challenged him to explore the very nature of the water with a complete mind of its own. What Hein soon discovered was the use of natural light and bold colours he could achieve using true watercolour techniques. Hein has demonstrated these talents to his peers with great pride. He uses only quality materials both pigment and paper.
