South African painter and printmaker Zak Benjamin experienced a profound conversion when in his mid thirties. As a young man he had rejected the Christian Church along with the Christian Nationalist Government and its policy of Apartheid. For a while he struggled to find the imagery with which to express his newfound faith, and slowly learnt to practise his art in the freedom given by Christ.
In 1996 he was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, an illness which has severely curtailed his output.
