FRANS GROENEWALD studied at the University of Stellenbosch (South Africa) where he obtained his BA.FA (Graphic Design) and BA.FA (Photography) with distinction.
Since his entry into the art arena in 2002, his imaginative paintings have enjoyed widespread public interest and support, with national exposure in the printed media and on television.
His work is characterised by unusual word play, fresh colour usage and unique characters such as Basil the chef and his freerange chicken, Benedict. Titles form an integral part of his paintings.
Unlike his images, Frans is actually quite a normal person but a clueless cook... He's married to Grace and they have two wonderful sons, Joshua (17) and Thomas (12). They live in Somerset West, Western Cape, South Africa.
