THE LESTER PRIZE | ONLINE ART DEMONSTRATION - DANIEL CONNELL

Daniel Connell is an Australian visual artist who uses portraiture as a mode of socially engaged practice—exploring notions of exchange, translocation and belonging. Born in Adelaide in 1970, Connell trained as an artist while being employed as both a Spanish teacher and a support worker in a facility for the homeless.

From 2007 to 2010, Connell lived in India and has since worked on socially engaged art projects for the OzAsia Festival, the Kochi Biennale Foundation, Multicultural Arts Victoria, SA Health and BUAP University Puebla Mexico, and was project lead for the Government of South Australia trade mission to India. He completed a PhD in Visual arts at the University of South Australia, Adelaide and lectures part-time at Adelaide Central School of Art. In 2018, he was invited to present his intercultural research as a TEDx Talk.

In this online demonstration, Daniel draws live in theCity of Holdfast Bay Gallery, a portrait of his friend Adelaide man, Abdul Salaam. Alongside this is a completed portrait of Lali, the subject of Connell’s 2020 entry for The Lester Prize. Connell draws this over a period of 4 hours using natural and compressed charcoal and an eraser. The support is multiple sheets of drawing paper and masking tape.

This event is FREE.
