Kobus Lotz was born in Reitz, Free State in 1962. Lotz works mostly in oil on canvas, but he also experiments with various
printmaking techniques. His fascination with physical and emotional isolation and people existing on
the brink of society is reflected in his work. He has had two solo exhibitions, took part in
various group exhibitions and one of his portraits was selected for the top 100 in the
Sanlam Portrait Competition in 2015. He works from his studio in Bloemfontein.
