FABRIZIO CAFORIO – “Fuz” as he prefers to be called, has devoted three decades of his career to wildlife art. The exquisite detail and life-like quality of his paintings comes from painstaking research. Much time is spent in the bush and at breeding research stations collecting all the necessary reference material. He has refined his skill and technique over the years to a point where fur patterns and textures are vividly and authentically reproduced on canvas.

ROGERIO DE ANDRADE – “I suppose my first influence and interest in drawing characters started at about the age of ten with Hergés Tin Tin. His illustrated adventures have always fascinated me. I collected and read all of his comic books. I enjoyed them so much that soon I was copying his style of drawing.

I invented my own stories and illustrated them too, “a la Hergé”.

BRUINETTE BRECHER (1944) – “When Bruinette Brecher, after almost twenty years as a successful artist in a well-known design studio in Pretoria, decided to start a career as a painter, she was on the verge of an important albeit very challenging career change.

The disciplines of the art of design or commercial art and those of the fine arts painter are vastly different and require a totally different mind-set; a mind-set that many designers find impossible to adjust to.
