Sydney-born Charles Blackman has been a major figure on the
Australian art scene since the 1950s when he joined the Melbourne
Drift, befriending artists life Arthur Boyd, John Perceval, Joy
Hester and Mirka Mora. He became involved with the Antipodeans
whose manifesto proclaimed the importance of figuration as opposed
to the tide of international trends favouring abstraction. He would
exhibit alongside many of his artist friends in the famous
Whitechapel and Tate Gallery exhibitions in London in 1961-62.
Noted in the 1950s and 60s for his "School Girl" series and the
mesmerising "Alice in Wonderland" paintings, he is widely
represented in Australian and overseas collections.
