About Stephen Townley Bassett

Southern Africa has one of the richest and most varied rock art collections in the world. Stephen Townley Bassett has devoted much of his life to faithfully documenting and preserving this irreplaceable legacy. He follows in the footsteps of his late uncle and mentor, Ginger Townley Johnson, who located and documented San paintings in Southern Africa from the late 1950's. Stephen is widely regarded as an expert in the field of pigments, paints and implements used by early cave painters in Southern Africa. He is the author of three books on Rock Art in South Africa and has been featured in film documentaries about rock art on SATV, BBC and CNN. Stephen’s field work is on-going and in 2019 he has documented seven new and previously unrecorded sites in the remote hills of the Mt. Fletcher area in the eastern part of South Africa. He is currently working towards a collaborative exhibition with South African rock art researchers. Stephen also presents his Dreamline© and wildlife genré of work using natural pigments.
