David Brits was born in Cape Town in 1987, and grew up in a 265 year old Cape Dutch Homestead that has been in his family – the de Stadlers – for 6 generations. He graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, UCT in 2010 and has a background in audiovisual and photographic archiving as well as graphic design.

Working across a diverse range of media, including printmaking, drawing and painting, as an artist Brits explores what it means to be a young white man living in South Africa today. His work draws predominantly from found archival images sourced from second-hand books, family photographs and the internet, addressing themes that include masculinity, the military, and pre-democratic South African history.
