Art 'n Africa
In an aim to increase awareness towards lion conservation.
Oil paint is Frans`s medium of choice. He uses an expressionistic-realistic style and his inspiration comes from nature itself. The combination of brush and pallet knife make Frans`s work flow with an incredible softness, yet striking level of clarity is attained. He also paints on other supports namely, wood, tiles and leather. Frans has a philosophy in life- 'People need light to see through the darkness'. He therefore focuses on the light which God provides, in nature, rather than the darker side of everyday life. Darkness can not be driven away with darkness itself. He strives through his art, to place on canvas, the wonder of Gods creation. Add to that a sprinkle of the light we read of in the scriptures, and you have what Frans Venter is all about.
