Jaco Benade (1964-)

Artwork by Jaco Benade


Born in 1964, Jaco Benadé is a painter who started his art career in 1996 and has since held a number of very successful solo exhibitions. His sensitive portrait and landscape studies are much sought-after, not only for their visual beauty but also for their fine artistic qualities. He paints nostalgic images of people he knew, emotions he felt and possessions he had. With radiant portraits and exquisite tapestries of flowers and broken objects, he captures the changeability as well as the richness of human experience.
