Paul Partos (1943-2002) came to Australia with his family in 1949. From 1959 to 1962, Partos studied at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Following his critically acclaimed, sell-out first solo exhibition in 1965 at Gallery A in Melbourne and Sydney (curated by James Mollison) and his inclusion in The Field in 1968, Partos became interested in conceptual art. In 1987, he left his 14-year teaching position at the Victorian College of the Arts to paint full-time, exhibiting with Sherman Galleries in Sydney and Christine Abrahams Gallery in Melbourne from 1992.
His work is held in the National Gallery of Australia, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, major state and regional collections.
