Peace - SOLD!


Peace 46cm x 36cm Oil on Board by Werner Filipich – SOLD!

Werner’s description of this painting is “Peace – what we all crave a little of in life. Looking into this painting we can appreciate the peace, tranquility and spacious elegance that it effuses, the calmness of the still waters, the softness of the background colours infused with a touch of warm spring blossoms.”

The crisp, refreshing style Werner maintains is a delight, capturing the realistic colours of nature. Werner’s artworks make you joyous, and often rekindle happy memories, perhaps of childhood days or a favourite holiday not so long ago. His country settings can be true to life, or a little romantic.
Werner’s great grandfather was an art teacher in Austria, explaining Werner’s early interest in drawing. Werner was born in Austria in 1943 and migrated to Australia in 1950. This man of many talents has represented Australia in the world surfing championships and was part of the Australian team.
His father was a professional hairdresser and Werner was the top apprentice hairdresser in Australia, winning numerous men’s and ladies Australian hairdressing championships. He then ran a successful business selling product and supplies to hairdressers Australia wide, before making the switch to professional painter.
His love for Australia is reflected in every painting he completes from his studio or outdoors. Painting trips to secluded locations, coastal waterways and Australian villages keep his inspiration peaked, as do working holidays overseas.
Werner has been the recipient of many awards during his career, with sell out exhibitions in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide over the decades. Werner appeared as the artist in residence on the Norwegian Star Cruise Ship, giving demonstrations and tour guides of the ships art collection. In 2021, The Combined Art Societies of Sydney awarded Werner first prize in the small painting category in their online competition.
Werner’s artworks have been published as greeting cards, calendars and Australian art gifts, available from Morpeth Gallery.
You will also notice that Werner always puts the title of his painting on the front of each of his works on the opposite lower corner to his signature. This is one of the ways to easily identify his work as almost all other artists only title the painting on the back of the frame. Werner has been painting professionally for more than 50 years and is largely self-taught. Werner paints in oil.
