About "Remnant of Red Location"

During early 1800's - Settler times of South Africa, the British Military built barracks for the troops on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth. The buildings consisted of rows of corrugated iron semi-detached buildings painted with red oxide to avoid weathering. When Apartheid raised its ugly head, the Afrikaans dominated National Party segregated Black people into the area naming it Red Location after the red oxide. Over the years the location became a settlement of crowded shacks which disintergrated. This remnant of Red Location is one of only two structures still remaining which the Red Location Museum has been empowered to retain. Unfortunately, the people in the area are so destitute that they have started dismantling it to build more shacks.

About Don

Don Bell

I am a multi-faceted artist and illustrator, Senior Professional Architectural Technologist, former advertising exec and keen photographer. I work in oil, water-colours, charcoal, pencil, pen and mixed-media including digital art. I enjoy all types of subject matter ranging from wildlife, landscapes, seascapes, portraits - across the spectrum to architecture, contemporary art, aviation, ships, trains and still life.
My aviation works are well researched and the aircraft and locations are accurate as possible so that they provide a true historical record for others to appreciate.

I attended art classes from a young age and was privately tutored by Andre' Vancoillie, well known local artist and lecturer at the age of 16 years as well as Paul Lavender.
I matriculated in art at the PE Technical College.

All my works are available as prints.

Price Range

US$ 57-16,957



I have participated in exhibitions at the Getaway Show Cape Town, Port Elizabeth St Georges Gallery, De Oude Kraal Luxury Guest Lodge, Grahamstown Arts Festival, Queenstown and EPSAC Port Elizabeth.

My aviation works are on display in my SAAF Museum Art Gallery in Forest Hill Port Elizabeth.
