William Kentridge, if he is one of the greatest artists in the world today, took a long time to find his way. Passing through the theater he studied in Paris, and other forms of expression, the South African artist finally came up with a very recognizable style. Drawing is his main medium, but William Kentridge turns it so far that it becomes a fresco or animation, often an installation.
