Stian Deetlefs (Joburg fringe)


My name is Stian Deetlefs, a contemporary artist living in richardsbay KwaZulu Natal, my work talks about life I encounter in this industrial area and world we live in, what we do to survive and who we are as a society. I use industrial materials to depict the human condition such as, concrete, found objects, household paints,ect. I express myself in all these mediums. While being self-taught I get my inspiration from artists like Pollock, Kline, de Kooning, Emilio vedova, Alberto giocometti, Picasso, Basquiat and many more!


I started creating things no more than 3years ago. Before that I started working in factories locally to support my family from the ripe age of 15. With almost no education I could not find a decent job. So I decided to go into business with my father who is blind. Creating furniture and decor out of concrete. Soon realising that what I am doing was essentially art! We worked from home creating things daily and , it fascinated me and I took it further. I gathered as much information I could about art and it’s history and searched for an identity. My own voice! With every piece I make I try to redescover myself and in doing so I take risks … I am not a sculptor I am an artist , I am not a abstract painter … I am a artist, there are no more boundaries in art
