David Larwill

(1956 – 2011)

David Larwill made his artistic debut in 1982, as a member of Melbourne’s influential Roar Studios. Since then his expressive style has remained consistent in its open accessibility and egalitarianism, which in part explains his success.

The first impression of Larwill’s paintings and etchings is one of playful irreverence. His great talent was his ability as an image-maker. There is no separation between idea and execution, and his work has a freshness and immediacy that this direct approach imparts. Their exuberance is at once nostalgic and infectious.

Larwill studied at Preston Institute of Technology, and Prahran College of Advanced Education, Melbourne, and now lives and works in Somers, Victoria. He is featured in numerous collections, including National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; Artbank, Sydney; The Holmes a Court Collection, Hoytesbury; Baillieu Myer Collection of Australian Art; Museum of Modern Art, Heide, Melbourne; Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane; British Museum, London.
