Selwyn Pikeur explores humour as a way of bridging the cultural divide in South Africa. “I’ find that my work as an artist is being progressively influenced by the satirical humour which cartoonists employ in their work.” He observes incidents in everyday life, exaggerates them and represents them to us in a style of compelling energy and humour. Selwyn portrays women as great fantasies, dressed in colourful extravagation. He uses bold colours and simple shapes and portrays humorous predicaments, well-known to the communities in the Western Cape.
His Works can be found in many national and international collections including:
Museum of Contemporary Art, (Smithsonian) Washington D.C, the University of the Western Cape, University of South Africa, Sanlam, Santam, Telkom and Swiss Reinsurance.
