Paintings from highly-esteemed artist, Graeme Stevenson OAM, will be featured in his Major Solo Exhibition at Brisbane’s Red Hill Gallery on Friday 1 December 2017.
Originally from New South Wales, Graeme Stevenson left a promising career as a paramedic when he was a young man to attain his pilot’s licence and travel the globe. With a passion for wildlife, nature and natural forms, Stevenson started creating art of the local flora and fauna during his travels. His lifelong interests in birds lead to his renowned illustrations for the book The Atlas of Parrots, which is still featured in the Natural History Museums of London, New York and Paris.
Once referred to as a “Master Artist” by US Art magazine, Stevenson is well known for his creation of the popular TV show, Colour in Your Life. The show features artists from around the globe and the program has helped to promote the fine art industry throughout the world. Stevenson also founded the Paint your Life Foundation in 2015, and on Australia Day 2017 he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for his contributions to the Arts within our borders and abroad.
His paintings reflect influences of realism, expressionism and surrealism, and have been purchased by numerous art collectors and celebrities, including the former US President Bill Clinton. The artwork created for Stevenson’s upcoming exhibition ‘The Attitude of Colour’ reflects on things he believes are still most important in our world, the beauty of the natural world and feminine form.
Red Hill Gallery is honoured to be showcasing the outstanding artwork from entrepreneur and talented artist Graeme Stevenson OAM. ‘The Attitude of Colour’ will be on Exhibition from Friday 1 December and will conclude on Sunday 17 December 2017.
