Munro came into existence early one morning in 1998, when God gave a young man a new name, a new life and a new career. Believing God's promise, he started looking for paint brushes, but found only builders' trowels, and started painting with these trowels. The rest is, as they say, history. Munro became an overnight success. By the end of 2009 almost 11,000 Munro paintings have been sold, making Munro one of South Africa's best-selling artists ever. All Munro paintings are catalogued and in more recent years, photographed as well.
To understand Munro’s work, one has to consider our exponentially increasing culture of instant gratification. Take a look at the Munro phenomenon: every day, somewhere in the world, a few people are buying a Munro. Why? Because Munro has the ability to represent his times to the people. When you look at a Munro, what you see, is what you get. Immediate gratification, presented to you in such a bold and honest way, that people seem to have the same immediate response to the work. Always breaking new barriers, this artist is not scared to enlarge his repertoire. Currently his abstract work is being received with due enthusiasm. In these works the Munro energy is even more visible and his message still comes through with the same power and energy as when he uses the single tulip as a theme. Munro has become a brand name and a leader in his field. You can see this by the influence he is having on some of his contemporaries.
In 2009 Munro retired from being a full-time artist, giving up the long hours to only spending a morning or two per week behind the easel. A wanderer at heart, Munro has lived in and around Pilgrims Rest, Graskop, Pretoria, Melkbosstrand, Marina Beach, Lephalale, and Bethulie. He currently resides in Melkbosstrand and Bethulie.
Munro avoids the lime light, and has never taken part in any art competition. He also prefers not doing any exhibitions. His works are mostly distributed by galleries and art dealers.
