David Larwill

1956 - 2011

 

Born in Ballarat Victoria, David Larwill is a distinctive and charismatic figure of Australian art. He rose to prominence as a co-founder of ROAR Studios in 1982, one of Melbourne's earliest and fiercest artist-run-initiatives. In his role, Larwill devised an innovative expressionist style which eschewed aesthetic conventions. While populated with naive childlike forms, his images emanates raw, primal energy.

 

Larwill is represented in public collections including the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria and the Queensland Art gallery.
