BILL UNDERY, AUSTRALIA, B.1955
Working from his studio in Wilson’s Creek, Bill Undery is an established artist with a rich and varied history. Commencing his career over 40 years ago as a graduate of East Sydney Technical College (now the National Art School), Undery works with oil and acrylic to depict his surrounds.
His work focuses on the frequently overlooked charm of everyday encounters, and captures the temperature and temperament of Australian rural, city and cultural life. Undery’s work has been exhibited in numerous national and regional exhibitions.
A past finalist in the prestigious Archibald and Wynne Prizes at the Art Gallery of NSW, and The Blake Prize for religious art, Undery has also been awarded the Australian Production Design Guild Artisan Award for lifetime achievement on cinematic creative projects that include Baz Luhrman’s ‘Moulin Rouge’.
