Anton Gericke was born in Johannesburg in 1947. His parents were involved in the hotel trade, and Anton fondly remembers using these settings to sketch and paint the people he would come across in these hotels.
Anton Gericke art features colourful landscapes, lively café’s, and music scenes and thoughtful, fun portraits. He is often asked to paint scenes from weddings and parties to add that extra special touch to the occasion. Artists that have inspired him includes Errol Boyley, Wessel Marais, Dale Elliot and Pieter Millard.
Both of Anton’s daughters, Murentia Moffatt and Carla Bosch, are also talented artists, and were taught by their father to observe God’s hand in His creation and to reflect His glory in their paintings. He currently resides in Brooklyn, Pretoria, with his wife Ronel.
