New Work

Tony Wellington paints in a meticulous, hard-edge, super-realist style which often blends humour and whimsy into his subjects. His oil paintings are as varied in subject matter as they are in size, ranging from miniatures to large canvases.

Tony’s paintings incorporate iconic Australian images. Often they are inspired by puns and wordplay. Frequently he will employ Trompe L’oeil trickery in his work. Industrial landscapes, bucolic rural settings and seascapes all feature. Tony’s passion for Australian fauna has also resulted in some very precise wildlife art. He also creates super-realist paintings in the difficult medium of watercolour.

Tony’s paintings have been exhibited and sold through a wide range of galleries in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, the Hunter Valley, the Sunshine Coast and Cairns. He has won various prizes for his paintings, and his work hangs in homes across the globe.

Tony has performed commission work for many private and corporate clients, as well as picturebook illustration and book jackets for a variety of publishers.
