Murray Charteris is quickly gaining a reputation for his dynamic, energy filled fine art. His bold colours and powerful compositions come together to produce artwork that is increasingly sought after. His originals are being snapped up faster than they can be produced.

Murray started painting at a very early age and during his childhood he has been tutored by several artists throughout Brisbane. After studying animation for 3 years at Queensland College of Art in Brisbane, Australia, Murray has made a successful career from his animation skills, creating 3D computer animation and special effects for television commercials and programs both in Australia and overseas. 

On his return to Australia in 1995, Murray started work with Australia's leading television network Channel Nine, where he quickly gained a reputation for his design. Murray was placed in charge of the Videographics department in Brisbane in 1997 and led a very strong videographics team for nearly 12 years. During this time, Murray has won a Gold World Medal in the New York Festivals and has twice been a finalist in the Australian Effects and Animation Festival.

Murray's real passion has always been drawing and painting. In 2007, Murray re-located to Hervey Bay and has devoted his time to his art, now working as a full-time artist. "Painting is what I really love to do, I love to create new worlds that could only have once existed in my imagination. I like to create a feeling of energy and motion into my art". Murray's subjects include local wildlife and birdlife as well as his renowned caricatures. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
