Dr. Michael Durst is one of the most exciting South African artists. As a psychologist, Dr. Durst’s paintings create not only beauty for the beholder, but also a state of relaxation and healing. His work combines realism with impressionism, evoking an emotional link to the heart—thus the name: “Heartscapes.”

Dr. Durst loves to paint the beauty of Cape Town--especially the Waterfront, Table Mountain, ocean views, spring flowers, and the vineyards. His abstracts have won top awards from Fine Art America as well.
