Artist Willem Boshoff
Year Created 2008

Willem Boshoff (b. 1951) is based in Johannesburg. His father, Martiens, was a trained carpenter and the artist grew up with a love for wood and respect for technical expertise. Boshoff trained as a teacher at the Johannesburg College of Art before pursuing a diploma in Fine Art in 1980. He received a Masters from Technikon Witwatersrand in 1984, and an honorary doctorate from the University of Johannesburg in 2008.

Boshoff is known primarily for his conceptual installations. He is one of South Africa’s foremost contemporary artists, and regularly exhibits nationally and internationally. His characteristic passion for words and knowledge structures is elegantly displayed in this remarkable etching. The diptych is titled Political Candy Floss (left and right) and is sold as a single unit.
