About Colin Snare
“As a child I was always drawing and painting for pleasure, school assignments or simply decorating the pages of an exam paper. I also had the dubious task of painting the shop signage on my father’s truck. Although dreaming of a career in illustrative art, it was the era where parents thought one should get a “real job” instead,” Colin Snare is quick to explain about his early inclinations toward an artistic calling.

“During my National Service days I did a major piece “Australian Forces in Vietnam” and it was bought by the army in 1969 and hung in the officer’s mess at North Head in Sydney. My “real career” began in the establishment of my own business in fashion wholesaling/marketing for 20 years, during which time I did not paint or draw a single line,” he maintains. “For a further 6 years I owned a stud Brahman cattle property and began to paint portraits of cattle and horses for various breed associations and enthusiasts, and experimented with other subjects, paints and techniques.” But everything soon changed for Colin, and his path was soon firmly set in a different direction.

He started to take courses in art, to discover what he wanted to do. “In 1994, I enrolled at the American Academy of Arts to start formally training to be an artist. The following 2 years I studied the renaissance Dutch masters at SORA (School of Representational Art) in Chicago under portrait artist Bruno Surdo – “to draw and paint what you see in nature”. I found a passion for still life, detail, color, light and accuracy. During this time I did many mixed exhibitions and shows in the USA and my pieces where bought by collectors in the States.

On my return to Australia, I spent 2 years painting a collection for my first solo exhibition at Philip Bacon Gallery in Brisbane, during which I sold all 14 pieces. I have since had exhibitions at Greythorn Gallery at Toorak in Melbourne and Arts Collection Gallery at Surfers Paradise and continue to show my works with them. Private and corporate collectors in Australia, Japan, Canada, Thailand, USA, Great Britain and New Zealand have bought my paintings.”

Colin’s detailed, vibrant still lifes have found a dedicated following in his native Australia and beyond. About his success, he remains humble. “I have had editorial pieces and photos published in the Queensland Times, the Courier Mail, The Melbourne Age and Australian Artist, while I continue to live a cave like existence under artificial light in my studio in Brisbane, “he says. His fans and collectors will be waiting anxiously for more work to emerge from Colin’s cave in the near future!
