Appollis, Jeffrey

Jeffrey Appollis was born on 23 August 1981.  He matriculated at the Paulus Joubert High School in 1999, followed by a National Certificate in Art and Design.  During this time he received an award  for best Art & Design Student.

He worked under Artist Hannes van Zyl for 2 years.  In 2005 he was introduced to Harvey Rothschild who has helped focus his work, developing an original style and promoting him in the art market.

He finds his passion in still life and landscape.  He is eternally inspired by the theory of the Artist Cezanne 'Harmony in parallel with nature".  His landscapes are mostly of Paarl Rock Mountain, its shape dominate the Paarl Valley and shines like a pearl on rainy days.  This powerful shape lends itself to translation in his paintings.

He is also inspired by artists like Rembrant, Manet and Monet.  His father is a talented musician and craftsman. It is from him that he has a love of working with his hands and creating.  His fascination with every day life objects, developed through time spent with his mother while working in the kitchen at the Paarl Nederburg Winery - with its fine objects and dramatic views, where he started to appreciate nature and art.
