Everyone loves a great abstract painting or print right? Today I’ve rounded up my top five Australian abstract artists. It was definitely hard to stop at five, there are so many talented artists out there.


1 MICHAEL BOND

Michael Bond - a Sunshine Coast-based artist, produces some heavenly abstract art. I see his work popping up in all of the most gorgeous homes. If you’re looking to own one of his coveted pieces you should check out Fenton & Fenton’s upcoming Autumn group show, opening on Thursday 4th May at 6pm.

Brisbane-based artist Louise De Weger is a firm favourite amongst interior designers, stylists and home-owners. She has a fan-base all across the globe, not just here in Australia and it’s not hard to see why. Her happy geometric prints and original artworks delight with their punchy colour schemes and fit well in most contemporary homes.

The fact that Louise also takes on a lot of commission, made-to-order work, means you can get the perfect colour palette to suit your style. Plus she ships internationally!

3 KERRY ARMSTRONG

Kerry Armstrong’s bold and striking abstract artworks certainly add a sense of drama and sophistication to any home. Featured regularly in high-end magazines like Belle and Vogue Living, Kerry’s works fit perfectly in luxe, Scandi and contemporary styles of homes, where the artwork is the true hero of the room. Her original black and white and blush pink works are among my personal favourites, however I do love her more affordable range of prints available through Studio Gallery. The Share a Sky print that was featured in Rebecca Judd’s latest home renovation project is totally swoon-worthy with its pale blue and pink colours (pictured below).

"My work allows me to capture and document on linen intersecting moments of raw emotional honesty."

I love the fluidity of Prudence Caroline’s artworks. Each feels very organic, and the colour combinations are oh-so-magical. Anyone looking to inject some serious colour in their home should definitely look to Prudence’s eye-catching prints. She has a huge selection of artworks available at Greenhouse Interiors. They’re totally dreamy right?


5 ANNIE EVERINGHAM

I’m also a big fan of Annie Everingham’s happy, abstract artworks and prints. Each of her works contains so many layers of paint, I’m sure everytime you look at one her pieces you’ll see something new. And I guess that’s what I love about abstract art – it’s completely open to interpretation and meaning. You’ll find Annie’s range of prints on her website (click here) and her original artworks through Fenton & Fenton and Jumbled.


HONORABLE MENTIONS...

Ok I couldn’t finish this blog post without mentioning a few extra abstract artists that I think you’ll also love. Belinda Marshall, Kate Fisher, Marnie McKnight, Ruchi Rai, Jasmin Zara, and Antoinette Ferwerda just to name a few.
