    Boonzaier derived his early style from the revelotionary approach to painting adopted by Pieter Wenning with subtle additives from Braque, it was fresh, forward looking and proved a very successful and popular manner.

    He was a founder and prime mover of the "New Group" of artists which was created in 1937, this was an association of the most progressive artists of the time. In the 1948 exhibition of South African art at the Tate Gallery, London twenty-three of the forty-four living artists selected were members of the "New Group".
