Angus van Zyl Taylor
Born in 1970 in Hillbrow, Angus Taylor has received worldwide acclaim for creating sculptures by using traditional techniques and materials in a contemporary way.
He mostly works on a large scale, creating impressive sculptures while the positioning of the pieces questions traditional western ways. His works appear in a wide range of locations, from public plazas and malls to private collections, and he was commissioned to do a work for the Lange Voorhout Exhibition Museum Beelden aan Zee in Den Haag. The Beelden aan Zee exhibition was opened by Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands (who was at that time still Queen of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and stepped down on 30 April 2013 in favour of her son Willem-Alexander, the present King). A similar work can be viewed on the corner of Park and Kirkness Streets, close to Loftus.
