Keroshin Govender is a Sydney based visual artist who specialises in portrait and landscape painting. His preferred medium is oil but he also works in acrylic. More recently, he has expanded his practice to include drawing and sculpture. He endeavours to capture the feelings and emotion associated with a person or place with an appreciation for the things which lead to that moment in time. Having grown up in South Africa, with Indian heritage and having spent most of his adult life in Australia he is intrigued by the way in which cultures mix and influence each other.
