Painter, Sculpture, Blacksmith, Animation and Glass blower
lives and works in Oude Molen eco village as an artist and designer in a diversity of media, since his arrival from Paris with his partner Sylvie Groschatau in 1998. They have established an unusual relationship between artist and neighbourhood with an emphasis on the living art and its use in healing, therapy and the breaking down of barriers as a silent force that merges the unknown with the unperceived. Anzu often chooses to re-cycle materials – creating from near decay and using the beauty of old scars. As a founding member of the Molen Malpitte Art Movement, Anzu worked with the group to create several exhibitions, most memorably the People Powered Entertainment Consol at Softserve in 2001. In 2004 in collaboration with Art & Squart Palais Tokyo Museum of Modern Art Paris, the Op Die Hoek Art Show rooms at his home in Oude Molen were opened. Since 2001 he has showed in: Pod of potential: YDETAG, National Gallery (2002); Neptunes Circus: V&A Waterfront; Modern Lighting Exhibition, Bauhaus, Rosebank; Exhibition of Lycramos luminos: Gallery Frederic du Luka, Paris; Art Action: Woosh Festival, Worcester; South African Glass Association Festival: Irma Stern museum; WAX exhibition in association with Sylvie Groschatau at the Alliance Francaise, Cape Town
