About "Stonetown Daybreak"
I walked through Stonetown in Zanzibar at about 7:00 in the morning and noticed all the activity in the alley with people going to work and the trader sitting opposite his store. That was the only open store at that time. The different contrasts and depth perception of the scene impressed me. I took several photos and used it as guides when I painted the scene back in South Africa.
Antons painting interest started at school but sports, woman and cars got the best of him. One of his paintings at school won an International Award in Australia. He revisited his painting passion again from 2006 onwards, is self taught and does not specialise in a specific style. His paintings is a reflection of what he experience when encountering different views of life and he only paints what he has experienced. Painting has become more than a hobby and now boarders on an obsession. Maybe this is his way of catching up on lost time[0x1][0x1]or trying to tell his story through pictures rather than words.
