Trevor Stuurman

Trevor Stuurman


Kimberley born; Stuurman is an award-winning contemporary multimedia visual artist who graduated from AFDA with a BA (hons) motion picture & live performance. Stuurman sees the world through his creative lens and nds beauty in that which reminds him of home – a place that is imbued with colour, love and belonging that reects Africa. Since he emerged in the creative scene of South Africa in 2012, Stuurman has easily cemented himself as one of the leading contemporary voices to be reckoned with. A seasoned explorer, he cites travel as his core inspiration. “the more I leave home, the more I realise the power and currency that home has. And I think that in turn makes me a better storyteller, because I seek pieces of home wherever I go and then create tangible products”. This essence of belonging inspired him to host his rst solo exhibition entitled “home”, a love letter to the Himba women of Namibia that enjoyed a successful run at the hazard gallery in Johannesburg.
