At a young age, Jon Eiselin moved from inland Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, to coastal Durban, 80 kilometres down the road, which he has since regarded as his home town.
Due to the dire political state of the country at the time, he migrated to the Netherlands where he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rotterdam from 1985 to 1990.
Jon Eiselin resided in Amsterdam. Whenever opportunities occurred, he returned to South Africa for prolonged and much appreciated visits.
On the 7th of May 2021, Jon Eiselin passed away peacefully. He was 62 years old. We will forever miss him.
