Transitional Artist

By | News | No Comments

Art has been around since the cave-men, but for something that has existed almost as long as humans have, it has evolved at a significantly slower rate. The art world has finally started making use of all of the incredible technology around us, but unfortunately technology and art still aren’t considered synonymous. Modern art, for many, is still veiled with vague and incomprehensible symbolism, this has made it inaccessible for a lot of people. Current trends suggest that most people are moving away from traditional art and are looking for somewhere else to go. A few artists have tapped into this transitional form of modern art, and are making huge leaps in connecting a new generation of people with art.

David Hart is one of these artists. He has gone to great lengths to make sure his art is able to be viewed and interacted with on every platform. Social media is just the beginning. Where most artists would only post images of their art, David has taken it a step further and has crossed film and photography with art. He films his entire process and displays it across media platforms. He is a self-taught photographer, videographer, and editor. Everything that is released on his website and social media accounts was made by him. He believes that he needs to be a part of the entire creative process in order to present art that is fully an expression of himself. He plans to delve further into the world of technology and art, incorporating more digital art in his already impressive portfolio. He hopes to engage people with art that that can be enjoyed by everyone. Modern Australian art can seem intimidating for a lot of people, but David does everything he can to help everyone make their own connection with art.

Waltzing Matilda with David Hart

By | News | No Comments

David Hart has a uniquely Australian story; his experiences and identity are interwoven with the very fabric of this country. From his birth to now, every moment has been heavily influenced by the fundamental culture of Australia. He was born into a family that already held great significance in the Australian art world. Never had there been a man more emblematic of the spirit of this country than David’s late father, Pro Hart. His legacy of art continues to cause waves today, and David has more than followed suit with a reputation as a passionate illustrator of Australian history and poetry. The Story of Waltzing Matilda is perhaps one of Australia’s most well known anthems and one that is very dear to David’s heart.

In this series David Hart brings the writings of Banjo Paterson to life, as he illustrates the story of Waltzing Matilda in six stunning scenes. These images have been faithfully reproduced using state of the art Giclée technology and are available as a single print limited addition of just 150 or as a boxed set of six limited to 150 and also as a framed set six limited to 150 editions.

The Brushman from the Bush

By | News | No Comments

David Hart has a uniquely Australian story; his experiences and identity are interwoven with the very fabric of this country. From his birth to now, every moment has been heavily influenced by the fundamental culture of Australia. He was born into a family that already held great significance in the Australian art world. Never had there been a man more emblematic of the spirit of this country than David’s late father, Pro Hart. His legacy of art continues to cause waves today, and David has more than followed suit.

David was born and raised in outback Australia. Broken Hill shaped his childhood and eventually his art. Scenes from those days still make appearances in his work. It was a childhood in the outback that made his father’s work so popular, and it was a childhood in the outback that launched David’s work as well. He established himself as a true artist of the bush. His father’s success also allowed him to travel the world and experience the cultures of many other countries. Those experiences reinforced his love for this country and revealed the beauty of his home that he might otherwise not have seen.

David moved away from Broken Hill in his 20s, but that only served to bolster his growing popularity. He first moved to Brisbane where he experienced city life for the first time. As with the outback, the city greatly influenced the subject matter of his work. He began including more urban sights and beach scenes in his portfolio. This is when high-end brands began partnering with him in collaborations. His beach scenes quickly became some of his most sought-after pieces, and he eventually found himself living them. David moved, with his young family, to a coastal home on the Sunshine Coast in 2001 and he opened his own gallery in Mooloolaba, named David Hart Galleries. It was an instant success.

David has lived in every type of environment that Australia has to offer – something not many people get to experience. All over the world, David is acknowledged as a truly great Australian artist, his art is recognized as the embodiment of everything this country is known for.

The trick, says David Hart is tofind an artist in early to mid-career, buy a big piece synonymous with them and keep it for 10 to 15 years. He followed his own advice and bought his father’s paintings, his father being Pro, a man who knew his way around an easel.”Dad would have given me anything I wanbted but I always paid for everything. I’d say to Dad, I’m interested in this. I don’t want any special deals. Whatever you’d sell that to a dealer for, I’ll pay you the same’.
