• Euan Macleod


Born in Christchurch in 1956, Euan Macleod completed a Diploma of Fine Arts (Painting) at Canterbury University. Moving to Sydney in 1981, he held his first solo exhibition later that year at Watters Gallery, East Sydney. Throughout his career, he has exhibited on both sides of the Tasman. Since winning the Archibald Prize for Portraiture, in 1999, he has won numerous awards, including the Blake Prize for Religious Art in 2006 and the Gallipoli Prize (2009). Macleod is represented in public collections including the National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne), Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and Christchurch Art Gallery. A monograph, Euan Macleod—the painter in the painting, by Gregory O’Brien, was published by Piper Press in 2010 and a major exhibition ‘Euan Macleod—Painter’ toured New Zealand between 2014 and 2018. His collaborative works with O'Brien were exhibited at Watters Gallery in September 2018. Currently, Macleod's work is included in Ashburton Art Gallery's touring 'Wai/Water' project, and features in Aratoi's 'Water\Way' exhibition.
