Artist Profile: Jo’burg artist Mariette Bergh (and her dog Anabel)


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Mariёtte Bergh lives in Johannesburg, South Africa. After six years as a graphic designer and art director in magazines she decided to pursue art full-time. At the moment she wishes she could spend all her time with her puppy, Anabel, instead.
‘I’ve been fascinated with human behaviour and the manifestation of emotions since I can remember, observing quietly as if viewing a never-ending film. I express my own experiences through fictitious characters and, more recently, animals as well. The animals serve to illustrate the satire in city dwelling as they beautifully reflect the mundane routines that we are so caught up in.’

Visit mariettebergh.com for more amazing artwork.

Handsome Things will keep you posted on Mariёtte’s future exhibitions.  (be sure to get there early, her work usually  sells out before you’ve finished your first glass of wine! )
