About "The Pillars"
I love gardening and plants. Wandering through nurseries is a favourite past time of mine. Where ever the roads of life leads us, it is always the beauty of the vegetation that stays with me. The anthuriums and the tropical vegetation of Mauritius inspired this work..
Munro's career started early one morning in 1998, when God gave a young artist a new name and a new career. Unable to find any paint brushes lying around, he turned to builders' trowels. Lavishing copious amounts of paint and colour onto canvas, Munro pioneered a new style of painting. The art market fell in love with his art, and his works became an overnight art sensation. In 2005 a Munro figure study-cum-portrait sold at a Matla A Bana charity auction for R100,000. This highlighted the investment value of his art, and caused a sharp increase in the overall prices of Munro paintings. In 2009 Munro retired from being a full-time artist. To date, more than 12,000 Munro artworks have been sold, making Munro the best-selling South African artist. Munro's works are all catalogued, and since 2008, photographed as well.
