"To know his work is to understand an artist who became a phenomenon. A man who never compromised because he was being lead by an all-encompassing drive to do what he loved, to paint. Even in the face of adversity, he continued to pursue his passion, unashamedly" 1913 - 2006

Tretchikoff was an exceptional painter. To finally view his paintings up close is amazing. I went to the exhibition on Sunday. His work is being exhibited at the South African National Art Gallery from the 25th May - 25th of September. You can also watch a documentary on his life's work which is totally inspiring. Tretchi kept doing what he believed in no matter what.
