  • David Badcock SigDavid Badcock

    David Badcock was born in New Zealand in 1960.  He came to Australia in 1977 with the dream of establishing himself as an Australian landscape painter. He began as a commercial illustrator before an adventure to capture the lights and landscape of the Flinder's Ranges which captured the attention of The Elder Fine Art Gallery in Adelaide, who then exhibited David's paintings for the first time in 1981. A series of televised documentaries featuring 'Artists of the Far North'  gave David nationwide media recognition as a landscape artist and he was invited to paint landscapes of the Northern Territory for the Darwin Gallery. This is a large collection of his paintings over 25 years, featuring many scenes of the Blue Mountains.
