Description

Walter Battiss (1906-1982)

Born 1906 in Somerset East, South Africa, Walter Battiss became a leading South African artist, influencing a generation of artists after him. Battiss spent most of his life teaching art and exploring his own ever-evolving art form. His work crossed many stylistic boundaries; looking at human and animal abstractions, symbolism, Ndebele bead work, coloured woodcuts, palette knife colour mixing. His interest is pre-Islamic, Mediterranean, and South African cultures are echoed through his work. Whilst exhibiting at the International Art Club in Italy in 1949, Battiss met and befriended Pablo Picasso and Gino Severini. Both these artists left a lasting impression on Battiss and greatly influenced his work going forward. Battiss was the founding member of the New Group and also the creator of the “Fook Island” concept. At 76 years old, Battiss passed away, leaving an important legacy, not only in South Africa, but globally.
