Stanley Hermans, born in 1963, lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa, where he has completed three significant public commissions. He left UCT in 1991 with an MA in painting, and since then has had eight solo exhibitions.
After stints as the art critic and columnist for the Cape Times, Hermans initiated a writing project in partnership with the HSRC that brought to the public’s attention South Africa’s better and lesser known iconic artists in the form of full page interviews with the likes of Nadine Gordimer, Helen Sebidi, Hugh Masekela, Nesta Nala, Sam Nghlengetwa, David Koloane, Jay Pather, Sibongile Khumalo and others. He has illustrated two children’s books and is currently completing a novel.
He works in a range of genre, including the representational or figurative, as in the still life, peopled and metaphorical interiors, the landscape, and pure abstractions.
