Letters From Paris

 

Samuel Condon

Samuel Condon is an Australian artist currently living and practicing in Paris. His methods tend toward painting and drawing, in which his subjects vary, whilst the core themes consistently rouse an investigation into art history, museum collections and the art objects. Ranging from renditions of iconic Australian history, classical European scenes and Imperial portraits, this impressionist infused artist follows the path of looking to tradition for inspiration, never failing to add a personalised touch of contemporary colour.
