ARTIST. HUMANITARIAN. TRUTH-SEEKER.
B E K K Y B E U K E S was born and raised in South Africa, after a personal decision to change lanes she immigrated to the United States in 2014. Bekky started painting officially in March 2014 and has since been published in two Out of Steps Books, featured in New York INSIGHT Magazine, won two awards for “Best Artist in Show” and will be conducting her second solo show in August 2016.
Her illustrative style bordering on surrealism can be attributed to her Fashion Design background. Her company, CHIMERA became a well-known South African label after her debut show in 2007 at MTN Fashion Week, where she sent models down the ramp wearing gas masks dripped in lace.
Her obsession with form and contrast can still be seen in her current work, she paints from personal experience and is deeply connected to her process hoping to draw the same intense emotion from her audience.
She is fiercely passionate about existing with purpose to connect and inspire people through her work.
