Martin George Britz is the President and Founder of Soweto Fine Arts. He has been working and specializing in the art produced by the black fine artists from Soweto since the late 1980’s. As such he has also written the defining book “South African Fine Art – The Soweto School”. This work defines the group of artists as the first legitimate “School Of Art” emerging from the African Continent. Britz has had an intimate relationship with the artists and their families over the years and saw the need to preserve and document their works and their lives for future generations to appreciate and enjoy.
