Andre Naude has been a practicing artist since 1974. In 1995 he obtained a MA Fine Arts degree from The University of Pretoria. In 2000 he joined the Department of Art History and Visual Arts at the University of South Africa on contract, where he co-ordinated the 4th level Art History course as well as presenting practical courses.
His solo exhibitions number approximately 30 shows and +/-50 group shows in South Africa as well as New York, Washington, Toronto, Paris, Hamburg, Leverkusen, Riberac, Barcelona, Budapest and Beijing.
He is a colourist and over the years his subject matter has been concerned with the human condition as well as with his immediate environment implementing the traditional tablescape as main vehicle of comment. His works reflect an incisive discourse with cross-cultural appropriation, capturing the transitional visual fusion of South African multicultural pluralism.
