Chloe Obermeyer is a visual artist based in Cape Town who creates work that is inspired by our country — from its people to its shores — and that is relevant and refreshing, in a medium and style that is uniquely her own.

Chloe graduated with a degree in Fine Art from Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2014 and has since exhibited her work at various spaces around the country, as well as at photographic exhibitions in Italy.

Chloe draws artistic inspiration from the natural world, and from the ocean in particular. She is intrigued by nature’s ability to perplex scientific conclusions, as well as its ability to inspire human imagination and fiction. For her, her work is a means of navigating her interest in South Africa’s oceans and coastlines.


Chloe creates cyanotype prints — a camera-less form of printing that dates back to the 1800s and is famed for its distinct blueprints. Some of her latest work combines these cyanotype prints with other mediums, including inks, acrylics, watercolour and koki pen pigments.

Chloe’s work can be found at the StateoftheART Gallery in Buitenkant Street, Cape Town
