Guy du Toit was born in 1958 in Rustenburg in the North West Province. He matriculated from Pretoria Boys High School in 1976 and graduated from the University of Pretoria in 1982. He was awarded his BA(FA) Degree with a distinction in sculpture. His work has been exhibited extensively, both locally and internationally. He has been consistently supported by private and public collectors, institutions, academics and fellow artists. He has been honoured with many awards and has in turn been invited to curate and adjudicate exhibitions.
The past few years have increasingly been spent on private and public commissions and in working closely with artists and businesses, especially those involved in design, communications, architecture, advertising and entertainment. Guy currently teaches part-time at the University of Pretoria and works full-time from his new home and studio in Swavelpoort.
