Martin Sharp (1942-2013)


Artist, art director, cartoonist, poster-artist, songwriter, film-maker, collaborator, agitator. Through graphic work and paintings, Martin Sharp is recognised as Australia's foremost pop artist. In his own work and that of many collaborations, Sharp was committed to social and cultural change. He wanted to make the world a happier place.

From an intense scribbler he became a wonderful drawer, collagist and colourist who experimented with a range of media. His creative skill can be seen in the weaving of words and images to form active, almost animated spaces. He also championed iconic artists and Australian graphic history.

Martin Sharp AM was born in Sydney in 1942. His family included industrialists, doctors, politicians and art lovers. For most of his life he lived and worked in Wirian, a grand 1920s home in Bellevue Hill, which he inherited from his grandparents while in his 20s.
