Tim Snowdon has, this week, been announced a finalist in the 2021 Moran Prize. Best known for his still life oil paintings, Tim's lesser known but equally impressive talent for portrait painting has been recognised in Australia's richest portrait prize.
Established in 1988 the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize encourages 'both excellence and creativity in contemporary Australian portraiture by asking artists to interpret the look and personality of a chosen sitter, either unknown or well known.'
Entitled 'David' the subject of Tim's painting is his friend David Argaet, an artist and stonemason.
The judges this year are Emeritus Director of the Art Gallery of South Australia Daniel Thomas AM, Australian Artist and 2017 DMNPP winner Tim Storrier AM and Dr Peter Moran, Managing Director of the Moran Health Care Group.
The winner, chosen from 30 finalists, will be announced on 30 November, 2021.
