About the artist

Multi-media artist Kimberley Gundle was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1963. Gundle has lived and worked in London since completing her Postgraduate at The Slade School of Art in 1990, following a BA in Fine Art from Michaelis School of Fine Art in Cape Town, South Africa. Gundle is known for her bold and vibrant use of colour, expressing her creativity in many forms including painting, collage, mixed-media drawing and sculpture, ranging from small house-hold objects to large-scale outdoor works. The artist draws on her own cross-cultural heritage and examines how we encounter different cultures and the impact this has on the way societies interpret themselves and each other. 

In 2018 Kimberley Gundle will present a solo exhibition at A&D Gallery in Marylebone, London from 29 October – 3 November 2018. ‘Kimberlely Gundle. Personal Encounters’ brings together work from the past decade of Gundle’s practice captivated by the Maasai people - the seminomadic pastoralists of East Africa.
