Hi, I'm Wynand van Niekerk and I'm excited to launch my new website, Downtown Sketcher! After months of hard work, I am thrilled to share my passion for art with the world.
My art focuses on capturing the essence of the urban landscape, highlighting the beauty and character of city streets and architecture. Each sketch reflects the unique energy and atmosphere of the place. My fascination with architecture and storefronts began in childhood, and it has only grown stronger with time. From the moment I picked up a sketch book and and fine liner, I was hooked. The intricate details and unique character of each building inspire me to create art that is both beautiful and captivating.
I found that urban sketching was not only a way to document the places I visited, but also a way to connect with the people and culture of a place in a way that photography simply could not match. My Instagram page, @downtownsketcher, has been a labor of love where I have shared my sketches and received incredible support and encouragement. I'm excited to take my art to the next level with the launch of my website, where visitors can browse my portfolio, purchase prints, originals and even commission custom sketches.
Whether you're a fellow artist, a lover of urban culture, or simply someone looking for a unique piece of art to adorn your walls, I invite you to explore my website and discover the beauty of urban sketching. Thank you for joining me on this journey, and I can't wait to see where it takes us.
