WORLDART is a vibrant Cape Town based gallery that specialises in contemporary art with a leaning towards urban and pop art.
WORLDART specialises in managing and marketing contemporary South African artists and their work, catering to the needs of those who appreciate and acquire art. Operating from its premises in Cape Town’s CBD, WORLDART introduces local and international buyers to exciting new works in an intimate gallery space and regularly hosts exhibitions in various venues in South Africa. It also assists clients in sourcing quality artworks for corporate and private art collections.
Established in 2004, this gallery has since become one of the premier art galleries in Cape Town. The art shown is contemporary with a leaning towards urban and pop styles in painting.
Bastiaan van Stenis is a skilful and adventurous painter who returns to WorldART on the 7th of November, his first solo exhibition in two years.
With a body of work titled Wake you gently singing, Van Stenis describes the paintings for this show as “light, kind of romantic but playful”.
“Every painting I do starts with a feeling, a want, a need from deep inside me.”
Bastiaan van Stenis does not paint about things. The moments that appear through layers of
paint with nuances and proportions that surprise are pure and honest. His painting technique is considered and intense but revels in the freedom of seeing what happens next. A good painter has to be good at solving problems on the canvas – a challenge that Van Stenis enjoys. He veers toward the unexpected then carefully steers it back to somewhere slightly more sensible. The result leaves the viewer intrigued and with a sense of adventure.
