About Dirk

Dirk Rossouw

Although not of Roman Catholic inclination, Dirk was born in 1955 in a Catholic monastery near Estcourt, KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa). His parents were traveling through the area when he suddenly decided to be born somewhat early. The only suitable place to be found at the time was the monastery. The rest is history, so to speak.
The surroundings at his birth might have had something to do with his love for drawing and painting, or maybe he inherited it from his father who also painted and even wrote one story, never to be published. Dirk also wrote stories. A number of his short stories were published in an Afrikaans children[0x1]s magazine called [0x1]Die Kleinspan[0x1] while he was still in high school.
Dirk never received any formal training in art. His parents, his mother an English teacher and father a Magistrate, did not think that art could be anything more than an idle pastime and therefore did not encourage his interest in art. The result was that he struggled through high school, following subjects he did not like. He even proceeded to study in Economics, Industrial Psychology and Public Law and eventually graduated with a Masters in Business Administration through Oxford Brookes University, UK at the [0x1]tender[0x1] age of 53. It was then that he decided to do what he had been missing all his life, to paint again. He even started taking art classes and although he still has his day job, his paintings take up most of his spare time.
Dirk currently lives in Melkbosstrand, a little town some 30 km up the West Coast from Cape Town, South Africa. He is married and has two daughters (both married) a son and two grandsons. Although Dirk[0x1]s production of art pieces is slow due to other responsibilities still claiming too much of his time, his paintings already hang in a number of corporate and private collections all over South Africa, as well as in private collections in Germany, Australia, Namibia and Canada.
Being mostly a classical artist, Dirk prefers oil as medium but also uses acrylics for his more neo-impressionistic works.
Dirk is an active member of the Blaauwberg Art Society.
