Renowned for his exquisite Nguni Cattle oil paintings Terry Kobus produces a variety of styles and sized works each displaying fine craftsmanship and execution.
Born and educated in Zimbabwe, Terry enjoyed spending time in the bush while growing up and this is evident in his choice of subject matter as he still returns to remote places to find inspiration. He left Zimbabwe and moved to South Africa to study Fine Art in the late seventies after which he accepted a post as lecturer in Graphic Printmaking at the then WITS Technikon in Johannesburg. He has been involved in graphic design for 30yrs and returned to his first love, oil painting, 8 years ago.
His passion for mountain biking has allowed this interesting synergy. Riding his bike into remote areas, camera and sketchbook ever ready, Terry collects reference material for paintings of the unique indigenous Nguni cattle in the rural areas of South Africa. From quick sketches in his journal to oil studies on wood and more detailed larger paintings his works capture moments in time away from the big cities in the grasslands of Zululand, the Drakensberg and along the Transkei wild coast. The scenic beauty of the Western Cape has also offered inspiration, evident in Terry's paintings of his home town Hermanus and the surrounding Overberg.
Terry has had works exhibited in France, USA and across South Africa and has works in many International collections.
