Home is thrilled to be exhibiting work by Dean Manning in our ‘The Portrait’ exhibition opening in late August.

Dean Manning came to painting late after a long career as a composer/musician with rock groups Leonardo’s Bride and Holidays On Ice. He now regularly exhibits his paintings and animated films. He has been a finalist in the Sulman and Blake prizes, his work is held in the collections of Artbank and Deakin University.

His portrait of comic actor, writer and director Lawrence Leung was a finalist in the 2016 Archibald Prize. Pictured is Maximum Lawrence, 2016, oil on wood.
