Established in 1958
The South African office was opened June 1958 in Kempton Park, Gauteng.
In 2015 after fifty seven years in Kempton Park Gauteng, the offices relocated to George in the Western Cape Province.
Marketing of products are done by the administrative office in George in the Western Cape. Here all of the artwork that is done by the South African artist is received on a yearly basis.
Some of these works are then selected to be reproduced. From these reproductions different products are manufactured.
Finances of the Association are derived solely from the sales of these products. Salaries to members and scholarships to students are paid out from this income, as well as necessary administrative costs like salaries, manufacturing, mailing, taxes and rental.
Expos and exhibitions are also held around the country in different malls and exhibition centres, where you can see how these talented artists do there work.
Although the Association has copyright on all artists’ works, original paintings remain the property of the individuals. From time to time artists stage one-man or group exhibitions where they sell their paintings at prices set by themselves.
The Association of Mouth & Foot Painters adopts a neutral attitude in all religious, ideological, racial or political matters. Preferential or discriminatory treatment in relation to religious, ideological, racial or political position of a member is thus excluded. The Association is a world wide organization and consists of all races. Entry into the Association is given to an applicant by his artistic talent. There are artists of all races and creeds in the Association.
We have 26 South African artists in the Association at the moment (2021).
