Stieg Persson Biography

Stieg Persson (born 1959) is an Australian contemporary artist. Persson was born in Melbourne, Australia. His undergraduate studies were at the Victorian College of the Arts from 1979 to 1981. He completed a Masters degree from the same institution in 1998. He has participated in many solo and group exhibitions in Australia and internationally since the early 1980s and is represented in all of the country's leading art museums. Considered among the first of the country's postmodern painters, Persson’s early work is characterised by his eclectic source material, monochromatic palettes, the use of arabesques and a free interplay between abstraction and figuration. His more recent paintings have tended towards abstraction.
