Deon Theron was born in 1966 in Pretoria (South Africa) where he grew up and later obtained both his B.Mus and Honour’s degrees in Performing Arts at the University of Pretoria.
His greatest passion in life is directed towards creating magnificent paintings. From a very early age he was aware of his natural desire to draw and paint and his talents as artist were nourished and developed since childhood.
He strives to give new dimensions to the different media that he employs during his creative endeavours. He achieves this with a variety of techniques and a strikingly good use of colour.
His style can be described as a mix of realism and impressionism. This delicate balance is exalted in his vibrant works of art. He is able to bring out with his paintbrush the brightness of his subject, while still maintaining a soft feel to the art work, thereby creating a unique atmosphere in each and every painting that he gives birth to.
Deon has had many successful exhibitions nationally at various galleries, corporate clients as well as private showings. Deon is very successful at marketing his art and he also regularly receives orders from clients who want specific subject material painted. In this respect he is renowned for his excellent portrayal of the human figure and face as well as animal studies. Some of his most popular works have had the Arab Horse and African Wildlife as subject.
He has also been commissioned quite a number of times to paint diverse themes ranging from architectural to landscapes to flower studies and still lives. His paintings usually form a focal point in any room and certainly meet the challenge of creating beautiful, trendy interiors. Deon truly believes in letting his art grow with him and it seems his brush ,canvas and paint are the vessels trough which he can express his identity as a person.
