Doyle, Jean

Jean Doyle is one of South Africa's leading sculptors. Jean integrates images of Africa with the influence of European culture. Her realism cloaks universal truths and hides a sometimes revolutionary spirit.

She is an internationally recognised sculptor whose trademark of the fuller female-figure offers interesting social critiques.

Jean started her art career as a painter and then discovered sculpture to be a more expressive art form. Jean has sculpted for over thirty years and started her own foundry, one of the first of its kind in Cape Town.

Jean has won international commisisons which include the famous Just Nuisance in Simons Town, South Africa, two diamond miners for Diamonds South Africa (Pty) Ltd; and Kifangondo, Angola's National Monument which depicts National Freedom. Kifangondo is considered to be one of the largest artworks on the African Continent - it weighs just under 8 tonnes, stands 9 metres high and took just under a year to complete.
