Masterful paintings by self-taught artist Marike Kleynscheldt 3

Sincerity 12 by Marike Kleynscheldt

Marike Kleynscheldt is a young artist from Cape Town, South Africa who works in traditional mediums, creating acrylic paintings and pencil drawings, with a fresh, slightly irreverent, and beautiful aesthetic. I stumbled across her work as I was searching for images of onions and garlic (a personal interest of mine), and her work stopped me in my tracks. I was amazed to learn in a brief bio that she has no formal training and has only been painting since 2007. If you enjoy Marike’s art as I do you can find more of her beautiful creations in Marike’s Behance gallery or on her Facebook page.
