Dave Robertson

Cape Town-based artist Dave Robertson has been producing artwork and exhibiting since the mid 90’s. Initially known for his photographic work, he has exhibited at several galleries in Germany, USA, the Netherlands and South Africa.

His first photographic book entitled, Plakkerskamp 2003-2012  documents a marginalized community in the Western Cape, over a nine-year period. This book won a prize at the Lëtzebuerger Buchpräis 2013, a national book award ceremony, in Luxembourg.

At the Spier Contemporary 2010 competition, Robertson won an award for Paper Trails, a documentary photographic project focusing on informal recyclers in Newtown, Johannesburg.

Immediately following this achievement, he began to focus intensively on abstract painting. In 2011 he had his first solo exhibition of abstract paintings at Worldart gallery in Cape Town. Since then he has exhibited paintings at several galleries in the Western Cape and Johannesburg.
