David Johnson Workshop

Saturday 28 0ctober 2023 

David strives to depict in his paintings with accurately and artistic excellence, the things we love and esteem in life and the bush veld. Wildlife and cattle have become his specialty.

His preferred mediums are soft pastels and oils. He has exhibited extensively throughout South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Germany. He has clientele locally and in 29 foreign countries. Architectural zoo designers have purchased rights to use 17 images of his artworks to use as backdrops in the zoo cages.

David has been invited to special exhibitions for example The Wildlife Conservation Trust, W.E.S.S.A., African Wildlife Heritage Fund and Watercolour Society of South Africa: Grand Masters.

He has been commissioned to do work for the Gaberone Sun Hotel; Engen Oil Co, London; Premier Diamond Mine, Cullinan;  Auto and General Insurance Co; and numerous other companies. Since 2007 he has been commissioned to paint the trophy portrait of the winning bull of the annual Elite Growth Test Competition. David has had many articles published in the SA Art Times Magazine.

David lives in Kempton Park, where he teaches and holds workshops.
