Artist Information

Robert Buratti grew up with a strong interest in visual art from an early age and a fascination for the Renaissance masters and the early Surrealists. After graduating high school, he was awarded a Bachelor of Arts from Macquarie University with majors in english literature, cultural and critical theory and psychology. While studying he began his career working for a number of commercial art galleries in Sydney, before continuing to a Master of Arts Administration at the College of Fine Arts/ UNSW. He is a recent finalist in the Albany Art Prize, Doug Moran Prize, Black Swan Portrait Prize, Brisbane Art Prize, Lethbridge10000 Prize, and the Cossack Art Awards amongst many others. His work has been exhibited at S.H Ervin Gallery, Devonport Regional Gallery, Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery and the Outsider Art Fair, New York.


His art practice is chiefly concerned with the inner consciousness, and the interaction of contemporary art with spirituality, eastern philosophy and western esotericism. Heavily influenced by the early surrealists and the 19th century symbolists, his work often uses the artistic traditions of still-life and Momento Mori as a basis.
