In my art I make use of three genres: portrait study, still life and landscape. I take these three elements which I paint in a traditional way and place them together on a cloth in an unconventional way. It gives my work an almost storyboard feel as a result of the various elements brought together. 

Jaco Benade is a painter who started his art career in 1996 and since then held a number of very successful solo exhibitions.  His sensitive portrait and landscape studies are much sought-after, not only for their visual beauty but also for their fine artistic qualities.  He paints nostalgic images of persons he knew, emotions he felt and possessions he had.  With radiant portraits and exquisite tapestries of flowers and broken objects, he captures the randomness as well as the richness of human experience.
