ART: Claudia Liebenberg


Claudia is a self-taught artist and illustrator from South Africa, with a post-grad Psychology degree, a "motor-head" father, and a penchant for watercolours. Despite the haphazard nature of the medium, she achieves a wonderful realism in her work. Her automotive pieces caught our eye (can you blame us?) and we couldn't help but share them, on the off chance you hadn't yet been introduced.

There’s just something feminine about how a motorcycle is put together. It’s a beautiful piece of art, just the shapes in it.
— Claudia Liebenberg

Having appeared in several iterations of the travelling Oil and Ink Expo, and featured on SilodromeIron and Air and ninetynineco (among others), she creates work for exhibition, commission, and sale, and although her finished pieces more than hold our attention, her detail and progress shots are especially captivating.
