Diane Victor

Internationally renowned for her expert printmaking and draughtsmanship, Diane Victor (1964 - ) started life in the mining town of Witbank, South Africa. After receiving a BA Fine Arts degree from the University of the Witwatersrand with a major in printmaking (with distinction), Victor went on to win various prestigious awards. In 1988, she became the youngest recipient of the Volkskas Atelier Award which granted her a 10-month stay at the Cité Internationale des Artes in Paris, France. Over this period, Victor was able to work collaboratively with other experienced printmakers and to observe and reflect on a society very different from her own. Victor's work tackles a range of pressing issues, ranging from sexual repression to personal and social violence to racial anxiety. Her work is deeply rooted in the troubled consciousness of contemporary South Africa.
