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. Samuel has a BFA from the Victoria College of the Arts, majoring in drawing, and a Master of fine arts from RMIT. He further undertook a Master of art Curatorship at the university of Melbourne. He is a finalist in several major art prizes, including the Archibald prize, Salon Des Refuses, the Rick Amor Drawing Prize and the Brett Whiteley travelling art scholarship. His works are held in numerous prodigious public art collections across Australia.
