Known for his exuberance, David Larwill made his artistic debut as a founding member of Roar Studios. Among Melbourne's earliest artist-run-initiatives, this studio pioneered raw, primitive and intuitive art - acting as a proverbial roar against the establishment.
In this work, Larwill's playful style beams. Childlike yet still cool, it layers character upon character. Like a window into a boy's mind, Larwill thatches people, helicopter and cans over each other. The energy is frantic, yet captivating.
'Untitled' hums with new life, youth and the integrity of ordinary life - all key expressions of the Roar sensibility. Represented in most regional and state collections, Larwill’s vision for art and life continues to resonate with our inner rebel. For collectors of Larwill, contemporary and Roar art, embrace this work.
