Artist / Piers Greville


A Melbourne based artist working predominantly with painting and currently completing masters by research  (MFA) at the Victorian College of the Arts

His work examines how the idea of our environment is thought of through painting. This stems from a deeply personal enquiry of his urban existence and dwindling ecologies. While the work aims to interrogate more than instruct, the personal and political stance of the artist are always in play.
