Joel Arthur Biography

Joel Arthur, based in Canberra/Kamberri, considers the role of perception and illusionism through representation and abstraction. His painting style slips between abstraction and expressionism, drawing from his immediate surroundings, the urban environment, and art history. Utilising a variety of materials and mediums, his paintings explore utopian and dystopian landscapes that appear at once both foreign and familiar.

He was also awarded Runner Up and Highly Commended at the 2022 Waverley Art Prize, selected as a finalist in the Bayside Acquisitive Art Prize 2022, and Guirguis New Art Prize 2017.

His work is held in collections including Artbank Sydney, the Australian National University, Deloitte, and KPMG.
