Rick Prins is an artist living and working in Stanford, Western Province.
He works mainly in oils and mixed media, and when travelling in Europe focusses on photography and pen and ink studies. Having studied Fine Art at University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg, he returned in 1983 to complete an Honours degree in painting. Other studies in art include courses in etching and sculpture at Whitechapel Polytechnic, London.
Rick has taught art at school level in both South Africa and England, and lectured at a teachers training college in Pietermaritzburg. He has exhibited in group exhibitions and has had solo exhibitions in Kwa-Zulu Natal and Gauteng, and his work has been collected by buyers in South Africa and the United Kingdom.
His work focusses on landscape, found objects and nudes. In more recent years, after living of the Klein Karoo, he has depicted scenes that include architectural compositions, succulents, the people, toys, dolls and rusty metal and chipped enamel – all of which depict the passing of time and nostalgic views of the past.
