ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Born : 1954, Pretoria, South Africa Marie Vermeulen-Breedt was born in Pretoria, South Africa. She is a dedicated artist who has produced an impressive collection of works. She has built a very successful career out her art and her work can be found in various prominent private and public collections both locally and internationally. Her work consists mainly of portraits, children, interior, still life’s, landscapes and equine works. Here works in the 1970’s and early 1980’s consisted mostly of child studies, that was in the time that here own children were still young. In the late 1980’s after moving to her farm in Bapsfontein, she began erotic studies that included nudes and the forbidden fruits. In the 1990’s her work was mainly interiors and horses. That was reflecting her time on the farm and also her travels throughout South Africa. Since 2000 she has done more landscapes, but also concentrated on her interiors. She has an honest approach to doing portraits and it has made her a popular choice for painting iconic figures. Such so that she was commissioned by the University of Pretoria to do portraits of Oliver Tambo, Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki for its new Human Rights Law Library, which was unveiled by then President Thabo Mbeki.

“Art is the spark, the llumination which is socially significant for it brings about understanding.”
Gerard Sekoto
