David Wheildon Oosthuizen was born in Durban and educated at Hilton College. After completing an art degree at the Natal Technikon he began work in the textile industry.
David chose to paint under his middle name of Wheildon and like his ancestor Thomas Wheildon, the English potter from Fenton, England, is an artist with a passion for developing his own technique.

Whilst David paints a great variety of subject matter, his main interest is Nguni cattle. In drawing reference from Nguni stud farms in Kwa Zulu Natal, mainly Aldora Farm, in the Karkloof and Kwalalamvuba Stud in the Underberg area, the artist captures the wonderful colours and patterns synonymous with the Nguni breed.

His work is mixed medium on canvas. He has his own unique recipe; a primed canvas as the foundation, watercolour for the main source of colour, and glazes to separate the additional use of acrylic and oil. Finally a clear varnish seals the finished work from the elements.

David lives with his family in the Hilton area and enjoys visiting the Midlands for reference and inspiration for his paintings.
