About Adele

Adele Bantjes

In kindergarten my friends complained to the teacher that I did not want to play with them but rather play with clay! The only thing that has changed is the medium I work in...


I started out my art career, making paper Mache sculptures and na[0xC3AF]ve paintings on paper. Later, I started using recycled paper on canvas to build up relief details on some of my paintings. This led to a very unique technique.

Adele Bantjes was born in 1976, Roodepoort, Gauteng, South Africa and began painting after completing High school in the picturesque little town Zastron in the South Eastern Free State.
She is a full time artist and has dedicated herself entirely to Naive Art.
