SHOW IS RATED: G

Digby Webster is an artist who is best known for his expressive and colourful acrylic paintings and works in oil pastel. He has had several solo exhibitions and is Ambassador for Front Up a disability led Arts and Cultural program – studio located at Western Sydney. His work is both expressionist and a symbolist - his dense, textured and sculptural use of paint has become a consistent feature of his work.

Digby Webster is a Sydney based visual artist with a career spanning 15 years. Digby approaches art making as a part of his everyday life, working from a studio at his family home. Predominantly Digby creates portraits in the mediums of oil pastels and acrylics. His work uses strong evocative colours together in an expressive visual language that is uniquely his. The imagery is as bright, fun, exuberant, and optimistic as Digby is himself.
He works in oil crayons on coloured Canson paper. His inspirations are quite spontaneous
and he works intuitively – usually making linework first and then colouring in the sometimes complex patterns. He has worked in collaboration with several local artists. Wall murals in the innerwest with Neil Tomkins and also collaborations with Rosell Flatley and Nadia Odlum.
Digby has completed exhibitions and residencies (see CV link from his website), his work has been commissioned and collected by the Australia Council for The Arts, The Special Olympics Australia (Taste Media), Artbank and Cushman & Wakefield.
Digby works across other disciplines, he is a founding member of the Ruckus Ensemble, a contemporary performance group who create large scale productions and has also been a production designer and performer on award-winning short films ‘‘The Interviewer’ and ‘Heartbreak and Beauty’ with Bus Stop Films.
He entered and was a finalist in the Archibald prize in 2020 with a double portrait with Neil Tomkins.
