Bron Stofberg


Background:


Bron Stofberg is a self-trained artist with a history of creativity.
She picked up her paintbrushes at the beginning of 2006 and started to experiment. So well received was her
early work with a group of Durban decorators that her art helped win both Lianne Van Niekerk and Lisa Walters
best stand on the show Durban Decorex.
Bron had found her niche and as her passion developed so did her art.
Bron loves the challenge of being given dimensions, a colour brief and instructions to make it happen! Due to the
fact that her paints and paint technique is unique and totally her own, clients are fascinated by the glossy “wet
look” of the paintings always wanting to touch and run a finger over the surface to feel the movement of paint that
flows, pulls, merges and repels. Her art has found new homes in many up-market homes all over South Africa and
even made their way overseas.
Clients are always amazed that not a single paintbrush is used in her technique only the pouring of tiny bottles,
palette knives, Hairdryers and other handy household tools!
The Da Vinci Hotel, JHB 2010 with Stephen Falcke
“I had such fun painting for 8 days on site in an empty shop in The Da Vinci Mall outside the Maximillion
Restaurant in the Nelson Mandela Square.
My brief from Stephen Falcke is everything must be linear in black, white, grey and silver. What a challenge!!
Huge canvases for the 3 lifts and others for the lift Lobbys and the penthouse suites.
“Bron was one of a handful of artists commissioned by the Legacy Group to create art for their new project, the Da
Vinci Hotel and Penthouse Suites.
In their on-going belief and commitment to support local South African artists, the Legacy Group are always
looking for ways to include local South African artists in their projects. They have realized that using original
artworks and working with Master creators in their field like Stephen Falcke their projects are truly ahead of their
time.
Labelled as “one of the Featured Artists in 2010”, the Legacy Group felt that Bron’s work fitted with the profile as
an artist to support. With Bron not too long ago having completed work on a piece for Madonna’s Port Production
studio in London where her brief was shades of green and white, now it is Black and White for the Da Vinci Hotel.
The 3 huge panels will be installed into the lifts making this a first in South Africa. As Leonardo created
masterpieces ahead of his time so too does Bron by the use of paint that is totally unique to her. She uses this
paint to create fluidity in her art.
Her client list varies from Students to International Pop Stars, Corporates to South African Sports Stars. She also
has numerous Collectors worldwide.
Bron has had the pleasure of working with many prestigious decorators in numerous projects including Hotels,
Offices, Private homes and International projects.
