Weaver Hawkins (England / Australia)

Art Gallery of New South Wales

Weaver Hawkins (1893-1977) was a British artist whose work was deeply influenced by his experiences of military action and subsequent injuries in World War I. Relocating to Australia in 1935, Hawkins created modernist prints and paintings that ranged from new realism to abstraction, capturing everyday scenes with profound emotion and introspection. Whether depicting landscapes, portraits, or daily life, Hawkins displayed an unwavering commitment to portraying the human experience in his art.
