Deathscapes

Euan Graham is a Canberra artist whose practice spans drawing, painting, and mixed media. He began painting and exhibiting at 14 years of age and was trained at Monash University in Melbourne completing a Bachelor of Fine Art in 1993. A few years ago he turned to the streets to exhibit his work, adopting Canberra bus stops as a surface for his paste-ups. This direction not only represented his growing dissatisfaction with the ‘Gallery Scene”, but also reprises his formative experience performing “New Epoch” paintings in the streets and parks of Melbourne. The political and provocative nature of Euan’s work and the topics and themes he represents continued in his subsequent body of work – Uncertain Journeys – created between 2013 and 2015. These works explore the refugee experience, utilising the techniques he adopts in his street art – stencils and spray enamel paint, in conjunction with more traditional mediums. in 2017 Euan was awarded the Empire Global art award for his work “The Cat Bell” a stencil work described by the judges as “elegant in a slightly sinister way”. Euan is a prolific artist who exhibits regularly. He is represented in The Australian National Gallery Print Collection and in Private collections in London, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and the ACT.
