David Larwill

By Ken McGregor

Contemporary Australian artist David Larwill populates his paintings with stylised human figures and animals, child-like forms and the occasional slogan. This gives his work a naive quality, but his admirers find his work evokes a surprising range of emotions and moods. Ken McGregor traces the artist’s interesting life, surveys his work through various periods and discusses influences, especially Larwill’s love of Aboriginal and tribal art.
