About us here at Lindy van Niekerk Art Gallery

My entry into the art world was triggered by my father’s love of art and my work as a sales representative for a leading manufacturer of art mouldings. My work provided me with the opportunity to visit art galleries throughout South Africa and Namibia. I came into contact with prominent contemporary artists and thereby established many valuable contacts. This all took place between 1988 and 1997. In 1998 my dream of owning an art gallery was finally realised when I opened my first gallery in Durbanville. My vision was to carry a wide range of quality art to meet the needs of a broad spectrum of clients. Soon galleries throughout South Africa and Namibia approached me for artworks. With this, I entered the retail as well as the wholesale side of the art industry. Art is the food of my soul and I’m enriched by the pleasure of being surrounded by it everyday and introducing others to my wonderful world.

Artist Of The Month

Pieter van der Westhuizen

Pieter van der Westhuizen was born in Pretoria in 1931. He studied art at Unisa under Sakkie Eloff, Leo Theron, Robert Hodgsins and others. In 1960 he worked under Alfred Krentz and in 1971 under Erik Laubscher. During 1979-1980 he attended the National Hoger Instituut voor Schone Kunst at the the Royal Academy of Arts in Belgium. In 1982 and 1985 he continued his studies at the Stedelijke Akademie in Ghent and the Ryks Centrum voor Grafiek in Belgium. During 1983 and 1985 he studied wood-block printing in Japan.

Born, as he puts it, “between the great drought and the Second World War”, Pieter discovered at a very young age that “the world I found myself in was not a comfortable one.  At around the age of four I decided that this life was not for me. I began creating another word for myself – in pictures.”

Pieter has had many one-man and group exhibitions in 1988. In 1989 he exhibited with inter alia Marc Chagall, Yaacov Agam and Ben Avram.

He works in pastel, watercolour, oil, ink, pencil, charcoal and other graphic media.

Today, Pieter’s works are found in private and state collections in South Africa, Britain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, Italy, China, Japan, and Israel. Truly world-wide.
