I am an award-winning artist from Australia known for my bold and sensuous oil paintings. I have exhibited widely in Australia and internationally. Highlights of my career include my selection to represent Australia at the 2006 and 2007 Guangzhou Art Fair in China and my selection as a finalist in the 2012 Art Taipei International Competition. I was a Zone winner in the London Olympics 2012 Art Show and I was selected as one of the Best Picks for Painting in the 2013 Dubai International Emerging Artist Award. In 2017 I was selected to exhibit in Underbelly, a group show curated by Dab Art at H Gallery in Ventura California, and was a finalist in the Hornsby Art Prize and a semi-finalist in the 2018 Artbox Project New York. In late 2018 I completed my first Artist Residency which involved painting a mural in the streets of Lakkos, the historic old town of Heraklion, Crete. 2019 saw three of my artworks featured in the Australian TV series The Block and I undertook another artist residency – this time in the beautiful French village of Fontaine-Daniel. In 2020 I was included as a finalist in the Wyndham Art Prize as well as being accepted into the International Guild of Realism. I received a Merit Award in the Camelback Gallery’s International Juried ”Shades of Red” Visual Arts Competition and placed 6th in the global American Art Awards. In 2021 I was a finalist in both the juried International Guild of Realism’s Spring and Fall Salon Online Exhibitions and was recently selected to exhibit in Janet Rady Fine Art’s latest international exhibition ‘Making A Splash’. My most recent achievement was being invited to participate among a group of renowned Australian artists in the Honour Her Art Auction where 50% of the proceeds from each piece went to gynaecological cancer research and my piece sold way above reserve.
I am currently working on a commission of seven paintings depicting the history of the Gold Rush in Charters Towers which will be made into a mosaic mural covering a shopping centre wall 60m long and 7m high. ~ @trishalambi
