Working primarily in drawing and painting, Andy Quilty’s work explores notions of status, belonging and sense of place within the banality of suburban Australian culture.
Quilty’s work has been selected in a number of significant exhibitions including the Adelaide Perry Drawing Prize, Rick Amor Drawing Prize, Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award (JADA), Kedumba Drawing Award, Albany Art Prize, Black Swan Portrait Prize and the Salon des Refusés. He has exhibited in solo and group shows interstate and abroad and his work is held in a number of state, corporate and private collections.
Quilty is as a Lecturer in Fine Art at The University Of Western Australia, and Program Patron for the Military Art Program Australia.
I’m a 19 year old Fine Arts Major in my first year at Curtin. Long time listener of RTRFM, with my favourite shows being Black and Blue, and Global Rhythm Pot (I’m also partial to a bit of Artbeat). I have worked in both fast food and retail so I’ve en- countered a very broad and diverse amount of people. I’m a pretty stereotypical 19 year old and not particularly bothered by my stereotypicality.
