"When I dip my brush into paint, I dip it into my soul, and he who cannot appreciate this must have a blank in his soul!"


Amos Langdown was born in Plettenberg Bay in 1930. His interest in art dates back to his childhood. He works in various media, but shows a preference for oil painting. His painting show a deep understanding of and sympathy for the people and events in the world surrounding him.


The artist has participated in various international exhibitions, for example in Munich, Germany, the Venice Biennial in Italy and the Sub-Saharan African Exhibition that toured the USA for a year. All the works in the latter exhibition were eventually sold and can be seen at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington. His work also forms part of several overseas and local collections, and his many solo exhibitions included one at the University of Port Elizabeth in 1988.


Afrikaans:


Gebore te Plettenbergbaai op 7 Mei 1930. Ek het daar opgegroei en my Primêre skoolloopbaan daar voltooi. Verdere skoolloopbaan aan Zonnebloem Kollege in Kaapstad voortgesit. Ek gekwalifiseer as onderwyser en voltooi ook 'n Hoër Primêre Kunskurses aan die Kollege.


My eerste betrekking was te Oudtshoorn in 'n Primêre skool. Ek doseer verder kuns aan Athlone Opleidings Kollege, Paarl.  Ek is kunsinspekteur/kunsvakadviseur in Kimberley streek en later die Bellville streek, Oos-Kaap streek tot by Aliwal Noord.


Behalwe opleiding aan Kolleges, studeer ek ook van 1963 - 1964 aan die Rijks Akademie vir Beeldende Kunste te Amsterdam.


Van hier besoek ek, Italie (Rome), Parys (en ontmoet Gehard Sekoto), Duitsland en spits my veral toe op besienswaardighede en Galerye. Met behulp van 'n uitruilingsprogram uit die VSA besoek ek ook die VSA in 1970 op 'n studie toer.


Uitstallings:


Talle uitstallings gehad in Kaapstad, Stellenbosch, Bellville, Paarl, Plettenbergbaai en selfs in Johannesburg.


Internationaal:


Neem deel aan die Venice Biennale, 1965.

Groepuistalling te Munchen, 1965.

Deel in die Sub-Saharah African Exhibition, wat die VSA vir twee jaar lank getoer het.


Ek het afgetree uit die onderwys en skilder tans voltyds.  Benewens bogenoemde kwalifikasies beskik ek ook oor 'n BA Graad (Akademies) in die geskiedenis wat ek aan die Universiteit van Port Elizabeth verwerf het.
