Lovely art studio and gallery on Thesen Island. You can watch Jan create his paintings with his fingers. Interesting works, amazing portraits from people all over Africa, and gorgeous landscapes. Very friendly welcome :) Definitely worth a visit.

Love taking friends visiting Knysna to the studio...it has become a "must do". There is always some interesting work to view, and being able to interact with Jan and find out the storey behind each painting makes it all the more worthwhile.

The depicted faces of Jan's paintings tell more than a million words. Hardship, love for life, better and worse days, loss of family and social structure, but the dignity always remains in their faces. Jan is not only an artist, he also handles the details...More

Beautiful studio on Thesen Island - a broad selection of beautiful original finger painted art. Owner clearly has a passion for his art. Served us a good cup of coffee whilst we admired his art and scenery.

This is an artist in love with his work! Jan’s unconventional methods and personal nature create unique pieces with a special texture and distinctness, nowhere else to be found. You will miss out if you don’t pop into this welcoming gallery with a personal touch.
