GEORGE NEWS - The work of local visual artist and Scava member Timothy Pangel is on display in the Sayer's Hall, George Museum, until
30 January 2016.
Timothy inherited his talent from his grandfather, who focused on painting artworks.
At the age of 14 Timothy painted local scenes on planks of tomato crates and sold these to local traders and later won local competitions.
His second attempt was to sell cotton to school friends for kite strings. He signed up for an art competition in 1972 and one of his art pieces was featured in Huisgenoot.
As Timothy grew into maturity, he focused on developing his art talent by practicing and hard work. He was determined to learn and study the artworks of South African and international artists and this is how he developed his love for visual arts.
Timothy's mother would encourage and support him in his endeavours by supplying him with the necessary materials.
He started working as a display artist at Pick n Pay, as well as for other companies such as Coca-Cola and SAB Douglas Green. After this he decided to go solo, which became a real challenge with disappointments, hardship and sacrifice but eventually his artwork became popular and his art is exhibited in various locations - Knysna Jail House, V&A Waterfront Cape Town, Tacoma Washington DC.
He was also involved in projects such as Educational Arts and Act against Woman and Child Abuse.
