Wessel Marais was born in 1935 in Magaliesburg, South Africa.  After a few years of workings as postman and taking after hours art classes from Zakkie Eloff, Marais decided to become a full time artist.  Drawing inspiration from other masters like Erich Mayer, Marais developed his own personal style of interpreting various subject matter on canvas.  Wessel Marais passed away in April 2009 but his memory lives on in his oil paintings of landscapes and his portrayal of everyday scenes in a poetic manner.
