Nicci Swartz is a contemporary portrait artist born and bred in the Eastern Cape. Swartz has painted murals all over South Africa in the last two decades, spanning from Johannesburg to Cape Town, and scattering the Eastern Cape. After Working in an Anti-Poaching unit for five years, Swartz decided to spend more time showcasing South Africa’s natural beauty, depicting large scale canvases of wild life in bold colours representing our loud and vibrant heritage.
The inspiration for the Aloes comes from spending five years in the bush while working for the Anti-poaching unit. It was always incredible to see the vibrant orange hue through the wide span of green bush, like the landscape was on fire! The Aloe offers healing, something our country is trying so hard to do.
