ABOUT US

Who are we?

We'd like to share a little bit about us and how we started creating beautiful home decor. MaritzART started as a dream when two paths crossed in 2008, by Maritz and Lindie.

In 2009, shortly after Maritz and Lindie got married, they started dreaming about starting their own business in selling Nguni Products and Oil Painted Artwork.

Maritz started painting in 1994 as a hobby, because he always had a love for drawing. But today, he is a self-taught artist, using only oil as his medium. So, his art can be described as something between realism and superrealism. Maritz' paintings include those of wildlife, people, and Nguni cattle.  In addition, he also does commissions which range from landscapes, portraits, pets, and many more.

Importantly, over the years, Lindie has acquired the skill of identifying feasible business opportunities, consequentially implementing them, and then using her sales-driven nature to provide clients with exactly what they desire. Lindie identified the opportunity to travel with Maritz throughout South Africa, to find the best suppliers of quality Nguni Hides. As a result, they now sell these quality Nguni Hides and Maritz’ unique artwork to clients locally and abroad.

Maritz, a multi-talented artist, painted part time while working in the financial industry; and Lindie, a driven sales person; decided to pursue their passions together. So, in August 2012, they took a “leap of faith”. As a result, they decided to start selling quality Nguni Products and Original Oil on Canvas and Shweshwe Paintings to the world. To date, MaritzART has visited and sold to hundreds of homes in South Africa. They have also arranged the export documentation to send these products to countries spanning all 7 continents.

As one of the largest online retailers of Nguni Products in the world, MaritzART has been very successful in combining their cowhides with Maritz’ Original Oil Paintings to make homes beautiful. Furthermore, we've sold thousands of paintings and Nguni products, for example: Nguni Hides; Nguni Mats, Carpets & Throws; Nguni Ottomans, Blanket Boxes & Cubes; Nguni Cushions; and Nguni Tripolina Chairs, to happy clients.

MaritzART is based in Pretoria, South Africa. But, most importantly, we sell online and enjoy doing home visits to showcase possible options, so as to ensure our clients are happy with what they buy.

Therefore, please browse our hand selected product range and feel free to contact us, because we look forward to assisting you in selecting the right product for your home.

I want to take a second to thank Maritz for all the joy his artwork brings me.. I’m the proud owner of 4 paintings and can’t imagine buying anything other than a Maritz.. I’ve never met anyone else that can capture a moment so perfectly.. It’s almost like you can feel the moment captured within the painting... A lot of times when I see something, I just know that Maritz would be able to bring it alive.. Not only is his paintings unique but your whole experience with Maritz & Lindie will make you feel special.. - Koonawarra NSW, Australia 🇦🇺
