Who are we?
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, and he always had a love for drawing. Today, he is a self-taught artist, using only oil as his medium. His art can be described as something between realism and superrealism. His paintings include those of wildlife, people, and Nguni cattle. In addition, he also does commissions which range from landscapes, portraits, pets, and many more.
Over the years, Lindie has acquired the skill of identifying feasible business opportunities, implementing them, and then using her sales-driven nature to provide clients with exactly what they desire. Born to be in sales, Lindie identified the opportunity to travel with Maritz throughout South Africa, to find the best suppliers of quality Nguni Hides and sell them and Maritz’ unique artwork to local and abroad clients.
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. In August 2012, they took a “leap of faith” and started 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 and 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 hides with Maritz’ Original Oil Paintings to make homes beautiful. To-date, MaritzART has sold thousands of paintings and Nguni products, including 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 sell online and enjoy doing home visits to showcase possible options, to ensure happy clients.
