Gert Rautenbach is an Afrikaans blogger and artist who has taken a foray into pencil art. His concept is simple – he creates simple pencil sketches of everyday objects and experiences. This Cape Town-based artist’s simplistic sketches purvey an unimposing emotional experience.
Through the minor colouring combined with simple line sketches, Gert manages to capture core elements of human experience. It is amazing what he is able to achieve through the use of minimal details and tools.
Gert is also well-known for his Afrikaans blog, where he dissects arts and culture – from philosophy to politics to film. His knowledge of the human experience shines through in his creation of the sketches.
We have collated a selection of sketches below. If you want to see more of Rautenbach’s art, visit his profile on Behance.
