Much of his work was inspired by his early years spent in the seaside village of Simon’s Town. In 1972, under the Group Areas Act he and his community were forced to move to the ‘coloured’ township of Ocean View.
His first solo exhibition was held in the newspaper offices of the ‘Golden Post’. At the time he said: “Before my exhibition I was just another coloured man. Our people take it for granted that only white could do such things. Now they are becoming aware…the we can do these things too; that we are human beings.”
