Tinus Horn

Tinus Horn

Tinus is one of South Africa’s leading caricature artists. His work has appeared in more than 30 publications, and he has done hundreds of gift caricatures on commission in a career that has spanned 25 years. 

His clients include M-Net, BMW, kykNET, Investec, the SABC, Avusa, Deloitte, Freemantle Media and many others. He is best known for his lightning-fast caricatures at corporate events, weddings and parties. His style is unique. Instead of the usual cartoony approach, Horn sets out to create what he calls in-depth black and white portraits is watercolour – in three to four minutes!

So he produces between 15 and 20 caricaturesper hour. “My aim is to create a true work of art. In this regard, speed is an asset; it has a freshness than cannot be obtained in any other way.” His gift caricatures are created in a wide range of media – oils, watercolour, pen and ink and digital.

Prices are determined by medium, size and complexity . Horn is also an accomplished portrait painter, with works in numerous public and private collections.
