Brett Charles Seiler lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa, where he also graduated from the Ruth Prowse School of Art in 2015. Seiler's work has elements of painting, installation and object art, with a strong emphasis on the use of text and language. Sometimes poetic, nostalgic or romantic, it is an integral part of his art or also stands on its own as a work. In his paintings, space is indeterminate, the figures are not located and are sketchily fleeting, the written elements seem spontaneous, like statements from street art. The colouring moves in a narrow spectrum between black, grey, white and brown tones, often using wood. His themes are sexual interaction, oppression, homosexuality, gender, men. Hailing from Zimbabwe, a country where human rights violations are commonplace, his work also highlights the struggle for equal sexual orientation in education, media and institutions.

“[My work] is a deep longing for understanding. It is from the point of view of something that I’ve missed, something that I cannot go back to. It’s a process of research.”

Born in 1994 in Zimbabwe, artist Brett Charles Seiler lives in Cape Town and had his breakthrough in 2019. He is known for casual but emotionally charged paintings of male figures he depicts with simple materials - sketchy protagonists struggling with subjectivity, anonymity, irony and intimacy. Attached text elements sometimes reinforce or defuse his compositions.
