How could you not fall in love with this joyous, happy dancing figure? The buying committee stumbled upon him upstairs in the stockrooms of Australian Galleries, surrounded by dusty sculpture paintings stacked along the walls and simply couldn’t resist.
Graham Fransella has a long and successful career as an artist in Australia, working in paint, sculpture and printmaking. His works have been collected widely both locally and overseas. They can be found in the NGV, National Gallery of Australia, Parliament house, Artbank and the Australian Print Workshop. His figures are instantly recognizable, with the head of the figure featuring in many of his images. Whats not to like?
