Janko de Beer is a South African born artist based in Cape Town. His sculptures are unique, outspoken and not easily forgotten.
Over the years, Janko has participated in many group exhibitions and had his first solo exhibition, a depiction of the juxtapositions in South African society, in 2010.
Janko’s current work depicts mythical animals. The sculptures are primarily constructed from dried sea bamboo and driftwood. They are expressions of thoughtful movement, and illustrate the precepts of contemporary futurism in sculpting.
The sculptures convey the history of the medium and also have strong individual characters with a subtle touch of surrealism.
