Well-known Durban artist and lecturer, Martin Burnett, died after suffering a heart attack on December 20.

His career goes back many years in all aspects of the visual arts in Durban. He had recently been lecturing at Nanda Soobben’s Centre for Fine Art Animation and Design. Nanda Soobben pays this tribute on his Facebook page: “Farewell Martin .. My fineart lecturer at CFAD passed away yesterday ... Eccentric and A Brilliant Painter .. We will miss you, Martin!”

Martin’s funeral service will be held at 10h00 on December 27 at Our Lady of Fatima, Durban North. This will be followed by tea in the church hall.
