Biography   Bill (William) Stewart Ainslie


William Stewart (Bill) Ainslie, South African artist and founder of several art training projects, was born in Bedford, Eastern Cape as a descendent of an early British settler who had arrived in the Cape Colony in 1833. A successful and talented graphic artist and sculptor himself, he was keenly aware of the damage Apartheid inflicted on local art. To combat this Ainslie raised funds to buy a house and established the Johannesburg Art Foundation in 1982, where gardeners alongside women of leisure, and domestic workers as well as Sunday painters received tuition.
