Munro’s career started early one morning in 1998, when God gave a young artist a new name and a new career. Unable to find any paint brushes lying around, he turned to builders’ trowels. Lavishing copious amounts of paint and color onto canvas, Munro pioneered a new style of painting. The art market fell in love with his art, and his works became an overnight art sensation. In 2005 a Munro figure study-cum-portrait sold at a Matla A Bana charity auction for R100 000. To date, almost 12 000 Munro paintings have been sold, making Munro thé best-selling South African artist. Munro paintings are all cataloged, and in more recent years, photographed as well.
Widely traveled, in search of new scenes, Munro depicts a wide variety of international images from “African Savannas” to “Tuscan Hills”, “Ripe vineyards” and “Moody Autumn Light”. His passion for color, texture and light are always characteristic of his work.
Truly an artist out of the African soil with an international appeal, Munro’s paintings are represented in corporate and private collections throughout South Africa and abroad.
