Martiens BEKKER

Martiens BEKKER

South African-born Bekker uses only discarded and unwanted materials, found or donated to him, which he gives a new life.  He likes turning these 'waste objects' into something new, and also makes furniture and other functional art pieces.

He has exhibited extensively in Cornwall since his Open Studios exhibition of 2009, and often shows work in hotels and restaurants as well as exhibitions in galleries and festivals.  In 2011 he has shown in various venues in Port Isaac and also at the Art House Gallery in Southampton, Hampshire.
