Event description

Description

Nick Stathopoulos is the son of Greek migrants, and grew up in Western Sydney. A self-taught artist, he is known for his hyper-realistic style, particularly his paintings of his childhood toy collection. Nick is a five-time Archibald finalist. His 2016 entry of Sudanese refugee lawyer Deng Adut was voted ‘People’s Choice’ to great critical acclaim and media attention.

Nick’s talk about the art of the portrait painter is presented in association with the National Museum of Australia and National Australia Day Council travelling exhibition, “Australian of the Year”.

Nick has also been a two-time finalist in the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize. His portrait “Ugly – portrait of Robert Hoge” won the People’s Choice Award in the 2014 Salon des Refusés, and that painting was a finalist in the 2015 BP Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery in London
