Creativity & Art

Klipopmekaar’s Cederberg region provide inspiration for a range of fun creative pursuits on the farm.

Klipopmekaar’s rock formations, plants, animals, and the rich history of the Cederberg region provide inspiration for a range of fun creative pursuits on the farm.

The owner of Klipopmekaar, Richard Bowsher, is one of the Co-founders and Board Members of AfrikaBurn. Inspired and endorsed by Burning Man (held in the USA), AfrikaBurn is a not-for-profit, freedom of expression, and creative arts festival which is held annually nearby in the Tankwa Karoo. And Klipopmekaar is conveniently located for creation and production of fantastical art installations for AfrikaBurn.

Together with friends and Farm Manager Paul; Richard frequently produces various sculptures and functional creative items from recycled steel, recycled materials, and old agricultural objects found on the farm. None of the art created is for sale. The emphasis is simply on having fun and exploring creativity in the beautiful Klipopmekaar wilderness.
