CRYPTO FEST 2024
Arno Carstens is an award-winning musician and fine artist based in Cape Town, South Africa.
Arno was studying to be a graphic artist in the early 90’s when a friend introduced him to the now legendary guitarist and producer, Theo Crous. Through a series of serendipitous events which followed that meeting, Springbok Nude Girls were formed.
During his career as the lead singer of The Springbok Nude Girls, and subsequently as a solo artist, Arno has released multiple albums, with a string of #1 hit singles & music awards including Best Rock Album, Best Alternative Album & Song of the Year.
He’s been on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, been called “The godfather of South African Rock” by Mail & Guardian and Sunday Times have hailed him as “One of the most prolific songwriters and performers of our time”
Over the years, Arno’s passion for all things art has continue to overflow. In 2007 he took a break from both song writing and touring and began working with his first love, oil on canvas.
His first solo exhibition was in 2012 at The Lovell Gallery in Woodstock.
His artwork now sells internationally from his online store www.thearnocarstensstore.com or through pop up art and live music events which are hosted by him on a regular basis.
Arno continues to release new music.
