About the artists

The Artist: André Pelser

As a young boy André received commendation for his artwork from the late Cape Town based and famous Vladimir Tretchikov. But it only blossomed later in life after he had a dream about holding a watercolor auction and selling all the paintings.

Since then all funds that are raised at these art auctions go to support André’s missionary work where he trains Pastors and leaders free of charge and holds church meetings and conferences.

When André was 12 years old an old lady prophesied that God would use him in other lands. He has spent a lifetime to fulfill that prophecy. He has been to 115 nations up to date (2017) and hopes to go to all nations registered with the United Nations (192) so there are 77 nations to go to!

Before becoming a missionary he and his wife Nola were actors on TV & stage in South Africa and also professional musicians. They use their talents to present the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.

André had two Pentax cameras with all the lenses stolen at JFK Airport, New York. This prompted him to make sketches in his little black Moleskine notebook instead of taking pictures on his journeys. From these sketches came the paintings for auctions.

He is a line artist and captures impressions with simple line drawings. He can tell an interesting story behind every painting.

Every painting comes with a signature of the artist at the back as well as the date and place where it was sold to make it authentic.

Examples of his art can be seen at


The Artist: Aje Pelser

André’s oldest son, Aje, is an oil painter and they hold joint auctions. Aje does a lot of commission work. They work together in missions for Harvester International Ministries. The slogan: “Commissioned to Go! Commanded to Love!” Summarizes what they stand for and why they use arts to reach new frontiers.

Aje compiled his recent collection in water colours from his mission to France last year. There is a move towards stronger lines like his Dad. He also added a few photographic prints for this offering.
