In his portfolio there are some landscape paintings. But even with the seemingly ever-present urge to categorise and position artists, Michael Beckurts is not strictly what you’d call a landscape artist. His current body of work features various vistas; landscapes, holiday beach scenes and urban café scenes set in Cape Town, evoking a sort of casual good-life vibe, akin to some moments in the work of the prolific architect, painter and illustrator Lucie de Moyencourt.
