It is official !!! Corné has become the best paid upcoming artist in South-Africa.
Born in the North West province of South-Africa on 25 January 1977.
Started to draw at age 3(three) and ever since showed an interest to paint.
Inspired by old master-painters worldwide and especially South-African impressionist Adriaan Boshoff
Corné was privilege to live with Adriaan Boshoff for 1(one) year at Hartbeespoortdam before the tragic death of Boshoff.
The hours spend together at Boshoff `s house talking about colors and lines, different strokes, sketching the same thing over and over for hours paid of.
“Although I see Boshoff as my mentor, I had to do the hard work of applying what he told me, and there is no easy way out. I draw and paint ever day and know that practice makes perfect.”
“I wish I had more time with Boshoff but I must rely on my own talents, and gifts that were given me by the LORD.”
An exhibition in Cape-Town (June 07) was a huge success. The Cape-tonions received Corné and his art work with open arms. 25(twenty five) of his works of art were sold within hours of the opening speech delivered by Dr Franklin Sonn (former SA ambassador in United States of America)
A record price of R60 000 was paid for one piece, and makes Corné (30 years old) one of the youngest SA artists who has achieved such a goal. Many more works were commissioned by art lovers and coinsures.
‘He is a name to watch out for in future’ was every-body’s remarks, painting professionally for only 16 months and delivering such high quality of art is nothing short of a miracle.
