GESHIM FRANCIS (article first published : 2000-02-23)

The KZN Directorate of Arts, Culture and Youth Affairs in association with Geshim Francis, a young and talented visual artist from Effingham, will showcase an impressive collection of oil paintings at the Durban Cultural and Documentation Centre.

Geshim Francis is a 12-year old pupil from Effingham Secondary School who has displayed an inclination for the arts from the age of three and his creative abilities manifested itself in the playing of the violin and also through the production of a number of paintings. Furthermore, his roots reflect a strong musical and artistic ancestry. His parents and grandparents are recognized visual artists and music practitioners. His passion for the visual arts strengthened, after learning that art is not offered at secondary school phase. Therefore, he pursued private tuition from his mentor Leslie Grant.

Geshim Francis' oils embody a deep understanding of the traditional fine art techniques of painting, accompanied by good use of colour and expressionistic brushwork.

The exhibition will be on show until March 13. Admission is free to the public.
