South African Painter Alan James Weiss joins Occhi's Roster of Talented Artists

Occhi Contemporary is pleased to announce our representation of Alan James Weiss. Alan is a self-taught painter and began painting in oils at the age of 14yrs. His primary career however has been in the field of Architecture & Retail design. We look forward to showcasing his meticulously alluring work.

Artist statement

“I do not wish to be limited in my choice of subject matter, although a recurring theme throughout my career has been wildlife, particularly African wildlife. Creativity is emotive, and basic instincts, raw power, and grace are definitely values that I want to portray when painting animals. I do foresee more narrative figurative artworks going forward - art should always be about pushing boundaries and exploring possibilities.”

Alan paints primarily in oils on linen canvas, and his studio is based in the beautiful City of Cape Town, South Africa.
