Award-winning Sydney artist Michelle Purves makes a triumphant return to the Sydney arts scene with an exhibition at the Yellow House. After a five year absence, Michelle has created a range of ethereal range of paintings of clouds, with the exhibition called Cloudscapes.
She has not been idle in recent years, exhibiting her works and winning prizes across the world for her unique painting of clouds, winning the prestigious 'Prix d’excellence artist emergent' award at the Mediterranean’s most popular art festival in 2015, Art Monaco.
Michelle also won the 2016 'Recognition Prize' at Art Domain Group, Germany; the 'International Prize Tiepolo', presented by Jose Van Roy Dali in Milan; Certificate of Excellence’ as a finalist in The Artavita Competition, 2017, USA; and is a finalist in the Global Art Awards 2017, in association with the Wall Street Journal, to be judged 17 November 2017 in Dubai.
In 2013, Michelle moved overseas to paint and exhibit at a range of art shows, including Art Monaco, Art Zurich, Sterner Gallery in Vienna, Miami’s Red Dot Art Fair and the Shanghai Expo.
“I am delighted to showcase my work, which has taken on a new dimension of expressing drama, romance and beauty", says Michelle.
A well known resident of Woollahra in Sydney, Michelle spent her early childhood in a remote village in Zimbabwe, a country where she became fascinated with colour, being surrounded by landscapes under the surreal light of the African sun. A self-educated artist, Michelle has developed her own style of painting that is popular with private collectors and galleries, while she is also a well-known, passionate patron of the arts.
