On Borrowed Time

Keroshin Govender's series of paintings celebrates local creators and the creatures that may outlast them

Keroshin Govender merges contemporary design processes with traditional painting techniques to create unique and engaging artworks.

In Govender’s paintings, unusual characters or backgrounds are superimposed onto real life subjects.

Govender grew up visiting game reserves in South Africa then national parks in Australia and has always appreciated the delicate balance of our natural ecosystems and the things which threaten them.

His current paintings feature human creators and resilient animals which are unlikely to be affected by changing climates or human encroachment i.e. those that may inherit the earth after human beings are gone. This apocalyptic aspect is contrasted by the human subjects who are engaged in a creative process, oblivious to their demise.
