FROM THE BUSH TO THE BOARDROOM
South African artist Jean Meintjes creates a variety of steel sculptures on a commission basis, and as an artist he is very flexible, being prepared to rise to any challenge.
Under relatively primitive conditions, he welds, hammers, grinds, and bends all types of metals to create glimmering masterpieces.
CAPTURING RAW AFRICA
INSPRED BY NATURE
Jéan grew up on Mazunga Farm, near Gravelotte, in the Limpopo Province, South Africa. On similar terrain, and in close proximity to the Kruger National Park, Jéan was exposed to wildlife at a very early age.
His knowledge and love of the Lowveld, and its animals, stems from these early childhood days. Jéan's father, Frans Meintjes, introduced him to the medium of steel at an early age.
