Morning On The Old Farm, Boundary Road, Box Hill by Dario Falzon

ARTIST NOTES: Much of the rural land around Box Hill will be developed into new housing estates in the coming year. I'm trying to capture some of these scenes before they're gone.

ARTIST BIO

Biography:

Currently lives and works in Sydney, Australia

 I was born in Bogota, Colombia, 1979, and brought to Australia at 8 weeks old by my adopted Australian parents. I grew up in Western Sydney, primarily around the Hawkesbury area. As a kid I was always drawing, everything from He-Man to Star Wars. If I didn’t have pen and paper in hand it was an odd occurrence. This continued through much of my youth. In my teens I became involved in music and was part of a hip hop group. I went on to be a solo artist, releasing an EP and two solo albums and appearing on various hip hop compilations.

It my late twenties I felt that I needed a creative change. My artistic expression came full circle when I enrolled in a community college course studying the basics of art. I had returned to my first creative love. Shortly thereafter I found the Julian Ashton Art School and enrolled on a part-time basis. It was around this point in time that I began to fully appreciate my interest in landscape painting and I began to seek out specific artists and workshops that could help me develop my skills. A connection to nature is something that is important to me and part of my heritage. My art is a way to express this and share with others the appreciation I have. My hope is that it will help you to see a little of the natural beauty in the world around you also.

I am an Associate member of the Royal Art Society of NSW and an Internation Brand Ambassador for Michael Harding Paints.
