Guy Maestri is an Archibald Prize-winning Australian artist. Although he is noted for his plein air painting and strong connection to landscape, Maestri also uses still life and portraiture to investigate the conventions of painting. His work speaks of materiality, gesture and observation. 'I look at things, I see them and I paint them. But I strive to work beyond simply observing and rendering, to try to make works that speak of humanity, landscape and the environment,' Maestri explains.


Born in Mudgee, NSW in 1974, Maestri completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons) in painting at the National Art School in 2003. He has exhibited throughout Australia and won numerous awards, including the 2009 Archibald Prize for his portrait of Australian singer and musician Geoffrey Gurramul Yunupingu. His work is held in significant public and private collections, including the National Portrait Gallery, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Art Gallery of South Australia, Macquarie Bank, Artbank, and Parliament House.

Guy Maestri selected as a finalist in the Wynne Prize 2020

Guy Maestri has been selected as a finalist in the Wynne Prize, awarded annually for 'the best landscape painting of Australian scenery in oils or watercolours or for the best example of figure sculpture by Australian artists’.

About his shortlisted work, Maestri explains: 'There is an immense old sheep station in Wilcannia (north-western NSW) where I go to paint from time to time. In the homestead’s front-yard is a grand old cactus garden. All attempts at its upkeep were abandoned years ago and it is being reclaimed by its harsh surrounding landscape. It is somehow unsettling and represents an extraordinarily slow dance between man and nature. It gives me a sense of the persistent march of time, of our often-futile attempts at controlling our environment. It also inspired this painting – the first I have ever made from memory.'⁠

Guy Maestri selected as a finalist in the Archibald Prize 2020

Guy Maestri has been selected as a finalist in the Archibald Prize 2020, awarded annually to the best portrait, 'preferentially of some man or woman distinguished in art, letters, science or politics, painted by any artist resident in Australasia’.

About painting journalist and television presenter Jennifer Byrne, Maestri explains: 'As host of ABC’s The book club and Mastermind (and literally being unbeatable at Scrabble), she is most certainly one of Australia’s great people 'distinguished in letters'. I told her that if she sat for me, I would make a small and quiet painting of her and that she could have it when I finished. I told her to bring a book and that all she would have to do was to sit and read. She brought Julia Gillard’s new book Women and leadership and read aloud to me as I painted. One inspiring woman reading aloud the experiences of another. What a privilege.’⁠
