Willie Bester was born in 1956 Montagu, Cape Town. In 1991 he attends art classes at Community Art Cape Town. He is regarded as one of South Africa’s most significant resistance artists. His work is characterized by dramatic social and political developments in post-apartheid South Africa, discussing uncomfortable issues such as crime, poverty, corruption and government responsibility. Bester thanks to his paintings, assemblages and sculptures, combined in recycled material, comments the political injustice and the problem of human rights. Bester works and lives in Kuilsrivier, a district of Cape Town.
