Bernard Ollis

Register an interest here.

Born in England, Bernard Ollis graduated from the Cardiff College of Art and Design, Wales and received his Master of Art (Painting) from the Royal College of Art, London.

As a figurative artist Bernard’s interest lies with the human form; the everyday lives of people, what environment they create and inhabit. With floating figures, vivid colours and undulating structures Bernard aims to visually engage the viewer to consider themselves in that very moment, an evocation of Paris rather than a picture perfect postcard view.

Bernard Ollis is the former Director of the National Art School, Sydney and has had a constant stream of successful solo exhibitions. He has been acquired in collections such as the National Art Gallery of Australia, the Museum and Art Gallery of the  Northern Territory, Queensland Art Gallery Brisbane and the Royal College of Art UK. 

Throughout his career Bernard Ollis has been selected several times for prestigious Australian Art Prizes including the Sulman Art Prize (2011 & 2003) and the Dobell Art Prize (2002, 2001 & 2000).
