Werner Filipich

Landscape Painter in Oils on Board

The crisp, refreshing style Werner maintains is a delight, capturing the realistic colours of nature. He is renowned for his images of Sydney’s beaches and waterways – often depicted with two girls in the foreground… their white sun dresses caught by the breeze as they stroll along the beach… His 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 was born in Austria in 1943 and migrated to Australia in 1950. He has spent all his adult life in Australia. Formerly a hairdresser, Werner has been painting professionally for more than 30 years. His love for Australia is reflected in every painting he completes from his studio in North Sydney.
