Stuart Dods
b.1995, South Africa


Stuart Dods is an emerging South African painter, and sculptor. Raised in Hermanus, he witnessed the small town’s working-class , animated by fishermen, construction workers and small business owners. Stuart discovered early on, that he had a deep admiration for painting. He started exhibiting works with the Rossouw Modern Art Gallery in Hermanus, who supported his creative output.

He chose not to obtain a formal education in art. Instead seeking inspiration and freedom of creativity amongst his artistic peers. He moved into a studio “The Ice Factory” in Cape Town which was instrumental in shaping his artistic vision. When he met South African artist Beezy Bailey, a new chapter began. Stuart initially took up an apprenticeship with Beezy Bailey and this is where their friendship quickly evolved to the point where they now regularly collaborate creatively.
