Born in Johannesburg in 1971, Walter Voigt grew up on the Lowveld Escarpment near Nelspruit in Mpumalanga. He was educated at Uplands Primary School, St Albans
College and Lowveld High School.  In 1992 he began a three-year course in Graphic Design at The Witwatersrand Technikon, majoring and specializing in illustration. 

Voigt’s technical ability combined with a passion for the sky and landscape allow him to capture the elements of light, space, air and movement. His recent works depict the Southern African landscape and their skies in all their glory. A Johannesburg city skyline is set in front of a dramatic backdrop of thunderclouds.  An alluring tropical Zanzibar coastline contrasts against the towering clouds of the monsoon season.
