About Clinton de


Clinton De Menezes is a multi-disciplinary artist working in a range of mediums that include installation, painting, drawing and photography. Growing up in the industrialised and mined landscapes of South Africa much of his work is informed by the aesthetic, the history and the changing socio-political attitudes towards the South African landscape and its visual representation. Since his relocation to the United Kingdom in 2007 De Menezes has expanded his visual and conceptual terrain to include research in Topology and in the notions of displacement, migration, ecology, identity and mortality.

Clinton was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1970. He achieved his Masters Degree in Fine Art from the Durban Institute of Technology in 2004.
