GUY DU TOIT was born in 1958 in Rustenburg in the North West Province.
He matriculated from Pretoria Boys High School in 1976 and graduated from the University
of Pretoria in 1982. He was awarded his BA(FA) Degree with a distinction in sculpture.
His work has been exhibited extensively, both locally and internationally. He has been
consistently supported by private and public collectors, institutions, academics and
fellow artists. He has been honoured with many awards and has in turn been invited to
curate and adjudicate exhibitions. He has also lectured at a number of institutions,
including Pelmama Academy in Soweto, Pretoria University, Johannesburg and Pretoria
Technicons, and the Johannesburg School of Art, Ballet, Drama and Music. He has given
workshops throughout South Africa and has been involved in community projects, seminars
and symposia. The past few years have increasingly been spent on private and public
commissions and in working closely with artists and businesses, especially those involved
in design, communications, architecture, advertising and entertainment. Guy currently
teaches part-time at the University of Pretoria and works fulltime from his new home and
studio in Swavelpoort.
