Dwayne Britz was born in Pretoria, South Africa in 1990. He lives in Tzaneen, Limpopo. Dwayne works exclusively in the medium of bronze sculpting and is a new artist with an exceptional eye for fine detail. He taught himself the art of sculpting with valuable insight from Micheal Canadas. He found his passion for the Tribes of Africa for there is so much hidden beauty that needs to be emphasized.
His most recent work represents the Himba tribe and the Bushmen. The Himba are a tribe nomadic pastoralists who inhabit the Kaokoland area of Namibia. The Himba have clung to their traditions and the beautiful Himba women are noted for their intricate hairstyles and traditional jewellery. The Bushmen are the oldest inhabitants of southern Africa, where they have lived for at least 20,000 years
Dwayne’s theme is to capture the beauty of historical tribes and purposively engrave a story in each sculpting.
“Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.”
2 Timothy 1:6
