Painter, sculptor, installation, assemblage, collage, drawing and photography

South African born, Victor Gordon has made and exhibited his art for forty years. He is primarily a painter and sculptor. He also creates installations, assemblages, collages, drawings and photographs. His wide-ranging concerns and techniques offer uncompromising, refreshingly unique and often quirky and challenging artistic statements.

Socially aware he considers himself an engaged ‘wake-up’ artist.

His works are in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of South Africa in Cape Town, the South African Constitution Court Collection in Johannesburg, the University of South Africa (Unisa) in Tshwane/Pretoria as well as the Ifa Lethu Collection, also based in Tshwane/ Pretoria.
