David Hinchcliffe

David Hinchliffe has been painting, exhibiting and selling his work in galleries since the age of 12, and has won numerous competitions as a young artist (Sunday Mail Art Prize, ABC Argonauts Award, Atlantic City Sculpture Award, Toowoomba Gemini prize). David has travelled and painted widely in the United States and the UK and is represented extensively in collections both in Australia and overseas. While his work is principally oils on canvas or linen, he has also produced many gouache works and sculptures as well as holding two exhibitions of his photographs (Two to the Valley, 1992, and Detours, 2010). His style has been described as contemporary impressionism. He trained under Brisbane artist, John Rigby, painting as a teenager with contemporaries Tomas McAulay and Rex Backhaus Smith and also studied under premier Australian landscape artist and Archibald prize-winner, William Robinson, at the University of Southern Queensland. David furthered his practical artistic study in New York, Paris and London in the 1970s while working his way around the world painting portrait commissions until he returned home to pursue a career in politics. He has painted portraits of Poet Bruce Dawe, Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser and businessman Sir Alex McKay. He has exhibited at galleries in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Harrods in London, Village Art gallery in Greenwich Village, the Australian Consulate, New York and at Michael Ingbar Gallery on Broadway.
