Joni Brenner was born in Zimbabwe. She has a BA(FA) and a MA(FA) degree from the University of the Witwatersrand. She has been practising professionally as an artist since 1996 and has held solo exhibitions in Johannesburg and London. Her work is in several public and private collections. Joni’s primary work is in the field of portraiture though as you will see on this website her work has moved away from traditional notions of likeness in portraiture, and presents rather, in David Bunn’s words, ‘a visual quarrel’ with the tradition.
