Pieter van der Westhuizen Paintings & Artwork

Pieter van der Westhuizen discovered at a very young age that the world he found himself in was not a comfortable one. At the age of four he decided that this life was not for him. He began creating another world for himself in pictures.

 

 

Pieter van der Westhuizen (1931 – 2008)

Pieter van der Westhuizen was born in Pretoria in 1931. He studied art at Unisa under Sakkie Eloff, Leo Theron, Robert Hodgins and others. In 1960 he worked under Alfred Krentz and under Erik Laubscher in 1971. During 1979-80 he attended the National Hoger Instituut voor Schone Kunst at the Royal Academy of Arts in Belgium. In 1982 and 1985 he continued his studies at the Stedelijke Akademie in Ghent and the Ryks Centrum voor Grafiek in Belgium.
