Johann Booyens' work centres on the complex symbiotic relationship between humans and the natural world that houses us. Drawing on Gregory Bateson’s position that the unit for survival = (organism + environment), he attempts to position his practice as that environment required for growth as a printmaking artist. He studies B-tech fine arts and design and M-tech printmaking (Cum Laude). He has exhibited in China, Mexico, Armenia and Scotland and has art displayed in the V&A Museum in London, the Beijing Art Museum, and several local private collections.
