Multi-disciplinary artist Wim Legrand was born in Belgium, where he honed his skills as master printmaker at a prominent international centre for graphic arts, after completing his studies in visual arts in 2000. His career as a painter has steadily advanced in parallel. To date, Legrand has had two solo exhibitions in Belgium and has participated in numerous group exhibitions in South Africa, Belgium and Germany, including the 2017 Cape Town Art Fair. 'Brouhaha', exhibited at 99 Loop in April 2016, was Legrand’s first solo show in South Africa. A second solo show with 99 Loop will follow in 2018.
He currently lives and works in Cape Town with his wife, fellow artist Jeanne Hoffman, with whom he runs Black River Studio – a production space that collaborates with artists on fine art screen printing projects – and 50ty50ty, an online collection of limited edition screenprints by South African artists.
