Welcome to Nguni Hides & Original Oil Paintings

Maritz Laubscher is a self-taught artist who started painting as a hobby in 1994 and became a full-time artist in 2012.

He started off by painting mainly wildlife and people. During the past two years, him and his wife (Lindie) developed a passion for Nguni’s.

The Nguni breed are the traditional breed of the Zulu nation and have strong associations both in name and in physical attributes to their surroundings on the plains of KwaZulu-Natal and Zululand. Nguni hides are an assortment of rich colours and patterns.

Nguni hides are highly functional and are mostly used as "rugs" in homes and furniture coverings as they are both decorative and warm.

They (MaritzART & Nguni hides) are currently one of the largest Nguni hide retailers in the world. They are very successful in combining the hides with Maritz’ Nguni paintings.

Maritz recently started painting Nguni’s on Shweshwe which is a huge success and very unique.

Shweshwe is a traditional dress fabric that has become wildly popular in modern African couture culture. Originally dyed indigo, the modern shweshwe fabric is manufactured in a variety of colours and printing designs characterized by intricate geometric patterns. 

Maritz still does a lot of commissions and all his paintings are either Oil on canvas or Oil on Shweshwe.

Maritz & Lindie lives in Pretoria with their two daughters.  The two of them travel countrywide to exhibit the paintings and Nguni hides.
