Bert Touwen

Artist Bio:

Bert is a painter living on the shore of a large dam in the Elgin Valley of the Western Cape in South Africa.
When he retired from farming in 2000, he was able to engage more fully in his favourite pastime: painting. Working mainly in acrylics, his work has a contemporary feel with a graphical aspect as a result of his engineering background.

Bert Touwen REMEMBER KEA
Acrylic on canvas

Bert likes cheerful images in bright colours, reflecting his optimistic view of life. Currently, he paints mostly quirky large portraits or flowers that bloom around him.

Most of his paintings are 1,2 meter square on canvas, large enough for accents in modern homes or business reception areas.
