Austin Honour is a British/Australian multidisciplinary artist who’s work collages conventions of painting, sculpture and tattooing. Previously located in Berlin, Honour is now based in Perth, Australia.
Interested in ideologies of history, material and value, Honour works within a holistic studio practice which aims to connect media, concept and form. Honour’s recent paintings stem from an engagement with found imagery often depicting objects of history and nature. Harking back as a pastiche of Picasso’s blue period and Yves Klein, Honour’s work tethers itself through colour as if being viewed through a veil of blue.
Honour was awarded a BA (Hons) Fine Arts from Central St Martins in London in 2014.
