Andrew Bonneau

Andrew Boneau (b. 1981) is an artist whose work reflects a deep sensitivity to the forms of nature and subtlety of light, embodying many of the qualities of the European realist tradition.​

Andrew earned his bachelor of Fine Arts at The National Art School in Sydney and later studied at both The Charlie Sheard Studio School and the Julian Ashton Art School.

To connect more full to the disciplines of traditional drawing and painting, he studied for three years under Jacob Collins at the Grand Central Academy of Art in New York.

His subject matter ranges from portraits, figures, still life and landscapes, and his work is characterised by the unique perception and delicacy he brings to each of these genres.


Andrew has been selected as a finalist for many national painting awards, including the Adelaide Perry Drawing Prize, the Stanthorpe Regional Gallery Art Prize, the Benalla Nude Art Prize, the Percival National Portrait Prize and the Shirley Hannan National Portrait Prize. He has been twice selected as a finalist for the AME Bale Travelling Art Scholarship and three times for the Moran Portrait Prize. He was recently selected as a finalist for the Archibald Prize for 2017 and has been commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra.
