Pieter & Xavier Binsbergen (Port Elizabeth, South Africa)

Pieter Binsburgen and his nine year old son, Xavier, from Port Elizabeth are avid kite flyers. Xavier took up kite flying at the tender age of 3 and loves flying with his dad. Their passion is dual and quad line kites, having dedicated much time in the past two years flying revolution kites, outdoors and indoors!

Pieter, who is a contemporary artist and visual arts academic, aims to breach the gap between visual art and kite flying. “I attempt to marry these two genres into a form of hybrid, conceptual art. There is little difference between art in the sky and art on a wall,” says Peter.
