About "Vickers Vimy London to Cape"

This Vickers Vimy G-UA8A "Silver Queen" participated in the London to Cape Town Race in February 1920. It was piloted by Lt. Col Pierre van Ryneveld and Flight Lt. Christopher Joseph Quintin Brand. Unfortunately it crashed on take off in Bulawayo and the pilots continued in another make of aircraft. One of the engines of this aircraft is a static display in the Port Elizabeth SAAF MUseum.

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, Acrylics, 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 in water colours.
My appreciation to Mrs Chilcott, my high school art teacher who saw something in me and went out of her way to mentor me by giving me extra art lessons in her spare time.
I matriculated in art at the PE Technical College and mention Mrs. Hill who assisted me greatly.

All my works are available as prints.

Price Range

US$ 54-13,924



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 the South African Air Force Museum Art Gallery in Forest Hill Port Elizabeth.
