Euan Macleod

Macleod produces dark, expressive landscape paintings. Out of muted colours and his distinctive heavily textured surfaces, Macleod shapes people and landscapes. En plein air landscape painting is an important feature of his artistic process.

Born in New Zealand, Macleod moved to Australia in 1981 and risen to prominence as a senior artist across the region, winning the prestigious Archibald Prize for portraiture in 1999.

His celebrated paintings and drawings feature in the pre-eminent public collections throughout Australia and overseas including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Federal Parliament House Art Collection, Australia; National Gallery of Australia; the National Gallery of Victoria.

Euan Macleod is represented by Watters Gallery, Sydney, and Niagara Galleries, Melbourne.
