- David Krut
David Krut's activities in the arts focus on collaboration and communication in order to encourage a wider awareness of the arts.
His first involvement in fine art was in 1973 when he supervised the establishment of a contemporary art gallery in Bond Street, London. In 1979 he became totally committed to the visual arts as a dealer and publisher of limited edition art. Since then he has collaborated with various galleries and art dealers in the USA, UK, South Africa, Canada and Australia, introducing the works of artists which may otherwise not have been shown in those countries.
An etching by British artist Joe Tilson in 1981 was the first limited edition print published by David Krut Fine Art. This work was created by the artist working with master printer Jack Shirreff at 107 Workshop near Bath, England.
William Kentridge visited 107 Workshop in 1992 and created a series of prints.
Other artists have been commissioned by David to work at 107 Workshop as well as other print workshops in Europe, South Africa and the USA.
In 1997 he edited and produced a William Kentridge CD-ROM, which has proved to be a valuable resource on the artist. It also led to further projects, chiefly on contemporary South African artists, including the TaXi Art Books series which is funded by the French Institute of South Africa, Pro Helvetia - Swiss Arts Commission, the Royal Netherlands Embassy, the National Arts Council and the MTN Art Institute, Johannesburg.
