Louise Almon

Louise Almon has lived her life as an artist for the past three decades. Louise was trained in the art schools of Rhodes and Cape Town Universities, where she graduated as a Bachelor of Arts in 1981. Lou lived and worked in the Eastern Cape from 1980 - 2000 and honed her skills in the company of George Pemba, with whom she worked intimately with from the mid-eighties till the end of the nineties. Her experience as an artist was further enriched by her involvement as a founder member of the Imvaba Arts Association, a non-profit organisation that sought to promote black artists and make their work accessible to the art market. For the past ten years Lou has lived and worked in Johannesburg. Louise completed a two month residency at the Cite International des Arts in Paris. She produces artworks primarily in the form of multi-layered ink mono-prints and oil paintings. Her subject matter is taken from her immediate surroundings whether it is figures on the street outside her studio or the model she shares with her colleagues.
