“Hennie is regarded by many, above all by Professor John Botha, Head of the Art Department at N.W.U. (now retired) as South Africa’s best expressive contemporary artist. Hennie has exhibited at all major exhibitions and venues throughout South Africa. He has been invited to many festival exhibitions like K.K.N.K., Grahamstown Arts Festival, and Aardklop (where he was also invited to be the festival artist.) Hennie’s work, forms part of many museums, private, and corporate collections, worldwide. After the theft of fifty of his best-of-life paintings, prior to a solo exhibition going live, Hennie withdrew from the limelight, never to seek it again. He now gives art lessons from his home studio and does mainly commission work.” Excerpt from an article by Deon TerBlanche in the South African Artists Magazine Dec. 2016.
