Swathi Madike

Swathi’s love for oil painting flourished at a summer course at the Florence Academy of Art which led to formal training at the Julian Ashton Art School. Since then she has participated in group exhibitions including the AME Bale and was recently awarded the Norma Bull Prize 2021. Swathi identifies as a South Asian artist driven by a passion to increase representation of people of colour painted by people of colour.
