Inge INK® : Artist Biography

Inge Zelewitz is a South African artist born and raised in Somerset West, Cape Town. Together with her husband and two small children they live in the beautiful Helderberg basin.

Inge studied art at the University of Stellenbosch where she majored in Illustration and graduated with a BA Honours Degree in Graphic Design.

After working as a Graphic Designer in advertising, Inge started her own business in décor and fashion styling in and around Cape Town. Here she could transform her creative concepts and bring to life her artistic designs in the commercial environment.

Her love of drama, dance and art lead her to create a full length stage production putting her artistic flair up for display in theatre. Inge and her husband were the youth leaders of their church at the time and felt driven to bring a positive message to the youth through the Arts.

Inge not only wrote, directed, choreographed, and did set- and costume design, but also produced this full length live show. The theatrical experience has lead Inge in writing poems and combining her writings and drawings in art pieces that convey a specific spiritual relevance.

Inge’s contemporary art works consist of layers of paint, usually rolled on, with more detailed drawings intertwined on top. She works in mixed media; mainly acrylics, oils, charcoal, and ink with subject matter ranging from fun pieces to more serious themes close to her heart.
In her final year as a Graphic Design student, Inge started experimenting in drawing with a toothpick and ink (toothpickINK®), and this technique introduced her to new uncontrolled strokes and features. A love relationship was born that continued to grow stronger throughout her career.

The ink sketches, became the launching pad to new creations of modern art and digital designs.
Inge INK’s creative writings and drawings collide to convey a spiritual truth that she has come to know.

Her desire is that her art will act as an universal language that the audience can relate with in shared experiences of pain and joy. Read Less
