ARC ONE Gallery is delighted to announce our representation of respected and dynamic artist, John Young. Working from a bi-cultural viewpoint, with a focus on trans-cultural humanitarianism, Young has created many series of significant paintings over the last three decades of his practice.

Young has recently been awarded the prestigious Australia Council Visual Arts Fellowship for established artists to research the history of the Chinese Diaspora in Australia. The research will inform exhibitions to be created nationally and internationally in the years to come.

Concurrently, Young is working on a large scale monument for the City of Ballarat. This public monument will be the first work in the region to acknowledge the historic contribution of the Chinese people to the area, especially during the nineteenth and early twentieth century.

ARC ONE will be showcasing John Young’s work in our Viewing Room from mid November to mid December, commencing with a celebratory reception.
