A changing Gold Coast skyline has led David Hart, the son of renowned Australian artist Pro Hart, to pay homage to his father’s legacy.
Pro Hart, who died in 2006, painted a cityscape of Orchid Ave at Surfers Paradise more than 30 years ago. New Hilton owner Jerry Schwartz, a big fan of Hart’s work, recently secured the original piece but there was a problem – his new pride and joy was missing fro the skyline.
“The man who sold me the painting knew David and suggested I commission an update version of the painting which included the Hilton, which I did,” he said.
