About Riaan

Home schooled in oil painting by grandmother Ellen Botha, Riaan learned painting, sculpting and drawing in the style and manner of the "Old Masters".

South African artist, born in Germiston next to Johannesburg in 1976.

I've become known for my portrait painting, from standard portaits to huge 2m faces painted from life.
I enjoy using paint applied in an impasto style(very thickly) with knife, brush or my hands.

Influenced by Carravagio, Renoir and Van Gogh. Those 3 fascinate me! Carravagio with the stories his paintings tell, Renoir with the atmosphere and softness of his ladies and Van Gogh with his 3d style of painting and all round beauty of their works.

Price Range

US$ 71-3,093



Mostly at Pretoria and Johannesburg art galleries.


Apprenticed under E.P. Botha.
