About

Colin Madgwick was born in Sydney in 1965, and began painting after relocating to Perth, Western Australia in 1997.
Colin builds his technique around the principles of observation and understanding. He enjoys working with strong directional light and paints mainly in oils, using knives and a variety of other tools.
Colin has a distinctive style characterised by an absence of blending, clean colours, and high contrast.
Colin is dedicated to his art. He is a perfectionist, producing work with a high quality finish and attention to detail. He paints to music, and is inspired both by nature (the sea and its moods, coastal environments) and man-made objects (machinery and forms of transport).
