Introducing the signature artist
An Exhibition by Thelmi Bekker

Thelmi Bekker is a contemporary impressionist working in oils and acrylic. Her work is stylised, bold, and without pretence. She uses a bold, yet delicate colour range in her work.

 She seeks inspiration from artists of the German Expressionist Art Group. Their use of large flat areas of a single colour, and distortion of shapes and colours are all evident in Thelmi’s work.

She was born in Colesberg, grew up in Philippolis, and resides in Harrismith. The Free State is a subject she continuously returns to. She tries to portray the Free State through her art, and evokes a strong feeling of atmosphere. She started painting at a young age, and is mostly self-taught.

In the Cape Thelmi exhibits at the Fleurs Gallery in Hermanus, and Artvark Gallery in Kalk Bay.
