Haydn Porter is an Australian born artist. He studied at the Melbourne School of Art, in Melbourne, Victoria. Porter is celebrated for his versatility, taking inspiration from many Australian artists’ famous styles, as well as from masters across the globe. 

Since the late 1980’s, Porter has immersed himself in the mastery of painting, drawing, pen and ink, sculpture and installation techniques. 

To Haydn, artwork is about more than technique. Porter believes that art is an expression of life and the inner self, and it’s a way to tap into the subconscious. 

While Porter enjoys all forms of artwork, painting will always be his first love.

He specialises in creating amazing, thought evoking paintings. Whether he’s using oils, or acrylic painting on canvas, his talent and experience create an authentic and magnificent piece of art. 

He believes that inspiration lies all around us, in the sensory experiences we encounter every day. Like many great Australian artists and painters, he takes inspiration from the natural landscape, creating a wide range of pieces based on this. 

His series of tree paintings, ‘Blue Trees’ is one of the prime examples of the way he effortlessly uses his surroundings to create striking canvas paintings.

For Haydn Porter exhibitions are a way to explore the exciting relationship between life, art and living in the now. Porter is a yearly contender in both the Archibald Prize and the Moran Art Prize competitions for Australian artwork. 

To the Australian artist, exhibitions are about capturing a moment in time. 

“I’m an artist that thinks above and beyond. I paint from the heart, manifesting ideas that come along right at that exact moment. My artwork can take months or years to create and only when it’s aligned with what I’ve set out to achieve will it be ready to be shown to the world. I am an artist creating artwork that stirs the imagination. My artworks all have a direct purpose.”
