Artist: Walter Oltmann


Walter Oltmann grew up in various parts of Kwa-Zulu Natal where he was exposed to the rich craft tradition of rural South Africa. Oltmann’s development of his exceptional draught skills soon translated well into his interpretation of the mastery of traditional craft skills that are to be found in South Africa. Much of his work shows Oltmann’s interest in the relationship between humans and insects.
Oltmann said: “In a way insects are our extreme other.”
