(b 1985South Africa. Lives and works in Johannesburg)
Traversing the tensions between the organic and the constructed world, De Wet’s work is realised through etching, relief printing, paper-making, collage and drawing. Thematically, this practice centres on our increased alienation from the natural environment due to the built spaces we tend to inhabit.
From 2011-2016, De Wet worked at the Artist Proof Studio in Johannesburg as a professional print technician, collaborator, and teacher. He currently works from his own print studio, Eleven Editions, in Johannesburg.
