Tyrone Appollis is a South African artist and poet. He was active in the formation of the Mitchells Plain Art Group in 1988. He has held numerous local and international art exhibitions. A professional artist since the late 1970s, Tyrone Appollis works from the conviction that “an artist must be of his time”.

Tyrone Appollis’s art is rooted in his geographic identity as a Capetonian, in his historic identity as a “coloured” person, in his post-apartheid national identity as a South African, in his non- racial identity as an African, and in his humanistic identity as a member of a global community of artists.

Born in Cape Town in 1957, Appollis studied art part-time at the Community Arts Project under Cecil Skotnes and at the Foundation School of Art in Observatory. In addition to wide recognition for his visual art, he is also well known for his abilities as a poet and musician.

Appollis’s work is represented in several public and private collections in South Africa and abroad.
