Beau Van Zyl’s Alluring Works of Art

About the Artist

Beau Van Zyl

From modern Africa to contemporary, Beau van Zyl’s vibrant works of art are close to being the Africa of one’s dreams. Her colourful art is a pleasure, no matter what perspective one takes, and her modern interpretation of Africa is her key to success.

She takes her inspiration directly from nature. “When painting from scratch the creative process needs to start somewhere and animals, African animals especially, inspire me,” she says.

The colour combinations and the interaction between colour and the subject are striking elements of her work. Beau creates light filled paintings of animals that reveal something special about them. She excels in optimising the expressions in the animals’ eyes, to such an extent that they are almost alluring.

Her style has changed over the years and has matured in colour, texture and subject. She loves to experiment and uses not only the ordinary brush-technique, but also various other techniques such as the knife- and the flow- techniques. She also paints with acryl or oil over newspaper articles.

Beau holds a B.A. degree and a Higher Education Diploma after studying at the University of Pretoria intending to become an Arts Teacher. After a few short stints at various institutions and having graduated as an interior decorator, she eventually decided to turn her hobby as painter and art teacher into a full-time career. She still gives short Art crash courses where she teaches the different paint techniques.
