TSA_ART_ART_EQUITY_heroSydney artist Kathrin Longhurst grew up in Communist East Germany, before moving to Sweden in 1987 and then travelling extensively throughout Europe, Asia and America. Settling in Australia in 2000 to focus on  her artistic career, the classically trained figurative painter began life drawing classes at the age of 14, and has since continued to develop a knowledge of the human form.

Her work clearly strongly influenced by her childhood in the GDR, references propaganda posters that depict working-class women, and infuses a contemporary glamour and sexiness, to her fictional subjects.

Longhurst has been a finalist in numerous notable awards, among them – the 2012 Sulman Prize, the Portia Geach Award, the Shirley Hannan National Portrait Prize, the Mosman Art Prize and the WA Black Swan Prize.
