🎉 JUST ANNOUNCED: Congratulations to the winner of the 2021 #ArchibaldPrize, Peter Wegner for his portrait of artist Guy Warren AM, titled 'Portrait of Guy Warren at 100'.

A six-time Archibald Prize finalist, Wegner painted 100-year-old Warren – the Archibald Prize winner for 1985 – coinciding with the 100-year anniversary of the Archibald Prize.

‘I have been working on a series of drawings of people who have turned 100, beginning with my Aunty Rita seven years ago. I’ve gone on to draw more than 90 centenarians. I chose to paint him because he is one of the most incredible centenarians l have ever met. To win with this portrait of Guy, is an amazing feeling. This portrait honours Guy Warren in the 101st year of his productive and meaningful life.’

— Peter Wegner

The portrait is on display in the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prize exhibition, opening tomorrow, Saturday 5 June at 10am alongside the landmark #Archie100 exhibition.

With thanks to Presenting Partner @anz_au
