artist biography

William Kentridge (b. 1955) is a South African artist best known for his prints, drawings and animated films. These are constructed by filming a drawing, making erasures and changes and filming it again. He continues this process meticulously, giving each change to the drawing a quarter of a second to two seconds' screen time. A single drawing will be altered and filmed this way until the end of a scene. These palimpsest-like drawings are later displayed along with the films as finished pieces of art.
