Vernon Fourie

I am an Artist, illustrator, Cartoonist, and Teacher, and in the words of Marc Chagall, “l work in whatever medium likes me at the moment.”
On Canvas my Painting Process combines a variation of Oil, Acrylic, lnk and Encaustic, while the Splash Technique incorporates the element of chance, allowing Mediums to bring their own uniqueness to the Piece.

I am greatly inspired by Pop Art, Art Nouveau and Popular Culture, from Comic Book Art to Cinema,
and am fuelled by the Geek Sub-Culture: thousands like me who draw their strength and inspiration
from Fictional Heroes by embracing their passion for Superheroes, Epic Adventures, Fantasy and wonder.

It is about man’s ability to imagine and believe and also his ability to draw strength from this belief. lt is about becoming something greater by believing in something greater.
May the Creative Force be with You ! ! !
