Our guest speaker at the 6th July Meeting will be Dario Falzon.
About Dario Falzon:
I was born in Bogota, Colombia, 1979 and grew up in Western Sydney, primarily around the Hawkesbury area.
In my late twenties I enrolled in Julian Ashton Art School 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 sought out specific artists and workshops that could help me develop my skills, learning from respected Australian artists such as Kasey Sealy and Todd Whisson.
In 2016 I was fortunate to become an international brand ambassador for Michael Harding Paints, accompanying them to the Plein Air Convention in Tucson, Arizona. While there I was enrolled as a faculty member and gave a demonstration of my painting technique.
I have exhibited in group shows and national art prizes such as the annual Camberwell Art Show and Victor Harbor Rotary club show, where I was awarded a bronze award in 2016. I was also a finalist in the prestigious 2016 Len Fox Art Award, a biennial art award show held by the Castlemaine Art Museum in Victoria, Australia.
My work has been published in Australian Artist Magazine, Art/Edit Magazine and the Rosemary & Co Artist Brushes newsletter.
I am an Associate member of the Royal Art Society of NSW and is a brand ambassador for Michael Harding Paints – http://www.michaelharding.co.uk/
