Stefan Blom

South African sculptor and painter Stefan Blom was born in Kimberly in 1963. He studied graphic design at the Witwatersrand Technikon in Johannesburg. Blom began his career in advertising and lives and works in Cape Town.

His current sculptures continue to channel his first-hand experience of the psychic wound inflicted by personal trauma into the more impersonal and largely unstable area of political and social forces. His works investigate how the victim and perpetrator are part of a continuum. Bound together as one entity in an eternal symbiosis, the human spirit is trapped. A nominee for the FNB Vita Art Now Awards in 1996 his work is shown mostly in European and American galleries and museums. Blom had his first solo exhibition in 1995 at the Karen Mc Kerron Gallery in Johannesburg.
