Andries Botha

°1952, Durban, South Africa 

Since the beginning of the 1980s the work by sculptor Andries Botha has been characterized by a mix of African and western elements. He uses typical South African materials such as exotic wood and often refers to traditional practices and local symbolic materials. Botha is a committed artist. He made You can buy my heart and my soul with a team of 10 African artists. The work shows a family of elephants. Each elephant is made of a metal skeleton on which a surface layer of wooden plates was fixed by means of bolts. This characterizes the work of Botha, who likes to draw attention to perseverance required by intensive work.
