Emile Cronje was born in 1967.
An expressionist by nature, Emile inherited his artistic flair and qualities from Gawie Cronje, well known impressionistic artist.
Emile realised his calling as an artist at the tender age of ten, when his own unique styled paintings captured the imagination of viewers. Emile works in warm colours, such as vivid blues, bright reds and intense greens. For him the world is a bright, cheerful place; very much the way in which he spends his life.
Influenced by the legendary Gregoire Boonzaier, Emile combines at least three different styles and entities of yester years art legends in his works. He attributes his success to his intense study of scenes and or objects before capturing his impressions on canvas.
Emile’s works have been distributed throughout South Africa over than twenty years through several of the country’s leading galleries and dealers. He has been invited to exhibit at the South African House of Art in London during 2004; a great tribute to his talent and success as an artist. His paintings communicate in an universal understandable language to it’s viewers, making him a popular artist, though a sound investment for collectors.
