Reacquaint yourself with the old, and familiarize yourself with the new; these outstanding works of art and their masters have a lot to show off.
“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” -Pablo Picasso
Donald Greig’s passion lies within the creation of bronze sculptures drawing his inspiration from Africa’s wildlife and his many safari experiences. He started sculpting in 1993 with his first piece being a small elephant which was later cast in silver. The more recent sculptures include leopards, rhinos and crocodiles, monkeys, tortoises, warthogs and meerkats. Sculptures vary in size from small to life-size.
In 2009, together with his wife, Ali, they opened a gallery in Cape Town’s dry docks at the Waterfront with an adjoining foundry. A few years later in 2016 they moved to new premises close to the highly anticipated Zeitz MOCCA, Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. The new premises have three foundries, two fine art galleries as well as a 3D company focused on the scanning and scaling of sculptures. It’s the largest bronze-pouring foundry group in Africa.
The Donald Greig Gallery & Foundry can be found at the ‘Port of Cape Town’ at the V&A Waterfront www.donaldgreig.co.za
