After one look at his work, Wayne Elliott’s story comes as no surprise. Growing up amongst Victoria’s vast Western Plains, Wayne was surrounded by rolling plains and farm lands that extended well beyond what the eye could see.
But Wayne always wanted more than what the eye could typically witness. He’d climb nearby Mt Elephant as a kid or sit atop the sky-scraping silos of The Mallee. And that’s exactly where he’d find more. More to see, more of a story to tell, more of a context to his own existence.
From then on Wayne has evolved into an acclaimed artist. Telling captivating stories through his colourful interpretation of landscapes. Vast and varied, from cities to stadiums. His self-taught, unique, ‘outsider’ style has given his art a rare and raw edge, that has been celebrated at exhibitions around the world, from New York and Montreal to London and Berlin.
