View Artwork

David Hinchliffe has painted professionally for more than 35 years and has exhibited widely in Australia, New York, London and Hong Kong. He studied at the University of Southern Queensland as well as the University of Queensland under well-known Australian artists William Robinson and John Rigby.

Regularly exhibiting throughout Australia Hinchliffe has had more than 60 solo exhibitions in Australia and the United States. His numerous awards include Gemini Art Award in Toowoomba, the Sunday Mail Art Award in Brisbane, The ABC Argonauts Award and the Rotary Atlantic City Sculpture Award in the USA. He has also been a finalist in the Tattersall’s Landscape Art Prize from 2002-2013.

Working principally in oils on canvas, the focus of Hinchliffe’s work is recording the "light, shapes and movement of city streets". He works from sketches on site and completes paintings at his studio in Brisbane, with favourite painting locations being New York, Paris, Buenos Aires, Havana, Rome and Venice, as well as his hometown of Brisbane. While his work is principally oils on canvas or linen, he has also produced many gouache works and sculpture.

After returning from Paris Hinchliffe completed more than 20 paintings of that city's streetscapes. In 2011, he held two exhibitions in New York, featuring both his Australian landscapes and his New York streetscapes which have become his signature work. In 2014 Hinchliffe had a sellout exhibition at the New York Art Fair where he sold 25 paintings, and accepted commissions around the United States.

He has exhibited regularly in SE Queensland and his international exhibitions include Harrods of London, the Village Art Gallery, Greenwich Village New York, the Australian Consulate New York and Michael Ingbar Gallery, Broadway New York

In addition to over 50 exhibitions of his paintings, Hinchliffe has had three photographic exhibitions and participated in sixteen group exhibitions and he took the photographs for the ‘Here and Now’ exhibition on refugees at Brisbane City Hall in February 2003 and for the book ‘Faces of Chinatown’ in January 2012. His work has featured in such publications as "Detours" (2012), ‘The Reconstruction Gang’, "Two to the Valley" (1991) which won the 1992 Australian Photographic Book Award and 'Toowoomba Sketchbook' (1976, Rigby Publishers).

David is represented in galleries both internationally and nationally and his works are held in numerous private collections including the United States and Europe.

“I particularly enjoy the shapes, the noise and the shadows of city landscapes – whether it’s the drama of lower East Side in New York, the reflections in the canals of Venice, the romance of Paris streets, the quirky laneways of Melbourne, the crowded pedestrian footpaths of Brisbane city, or the treed streets near my home”.
