(“Girls Night Out” by Keith Erasmus)

Local artist Keith Erasmus is a photographer, graphic artist and poet, born in the Eastern Cape and educated at Grey and Rhodes University. He has travelled widely both in Africa and beyond and has held one-man exhibitions in Great Britain and Germany. He presently concentrates on graphic art and continues to write. 

An autobiographical book of visual art and poetry is presently in the pipeline and should be published in 2019.

His drawings comprise an amalgam of mixed media techniques, using various inks, pearlette drops, oil pastel and charcoal. The work reflects mythological, naturalistic and contemporary themes, and are imbued with a whimsical and magical quality.

Erasmus’ work can be seen at the Artists Gallery in Ramsgate.
