Born in Ballarat Victoria, David Larwill is a distinctive and charismatic figure of Australian art. He rose to prominence as a co-founder of Roar Studios. Founded in 1982 on Brunswick Street Fitzroy, Roar Studios represented one of Melbourne’s earliest and fiercest artist-run-initiatives. In his role, Larwill devised an innovative expressionist style which eschewed aesthetic conventions. While populated with naive childlike forms, his work blazes with a raw, primal energy as crosses themes both grand and trivial. Larwill is represented in public collections including the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria and the Queensland Art gallery.
