Samuel Condon is an Australian artist practicing his art in Paris. His modes of creation revolve around painting and drawing, subjects vary but the core theme throughout his work is an investigation into art history, museum collections and their artistic objects. Ranging from renditions of iconic Australian history, French classical scenes and Napoleonic portraits, this impressionist infused artist follows the traditional path of looking to the classics for inspiration and adding a touch of contemporary colour into the mix.
Born in Geelong, Victoria in 1985, Condon has a Master of Fine Arts from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) and Bachelor of Fine Arts (Drawing) from the Victorian College of the Arts.
He was a finalist in the Archibald Prize in 2020, 2019, 2015, 2014, the Salon des Refusés in 2018, 2016, and Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship in 2013, 2012 and 2011.
His works are held in numerous major public art art collections in Australia.
