Clive Collender

Clive Collender is a Perth-based artist who works two-days a week from DADAA’s Paper Projects studio in Fremantle.

Clive is a prolific artist: for over the past fifty years, he has produced an extraordinary array of pictures on paper, canvas and board in paint, pencil and pen.

Clive is the son of a geologist whose occupation took the family to many different countries throughout Clive’s childhood, living for some time in both the United Kingdom and South Africa.

Clive’s art draws from his wealth of childhood experiences of travelling to exotic places. As well as this, he is inspired to document contemporary life: visits to the zoo and new towns and cities.

His works are colourful, distinctive, playful, humorous and at times confronting, detailing encyclopaedic cycles of animals and remembered moments from his every day.

Clive has exhibited as part of group exhibition HERE&NOW at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery in 2013; From the Outside, Alcaston Gallery in 2014 and Beyond the Western Edge, Goldfields Arts Centre in 2014. He is also a regular participant in the Nulsen’s As We Are exhibitions.

Recently, Clive exhibited over 80 works at the Kunsthal Rotterdam with the Museum of Everything, 2016, and currently has one piece showing as part of the Museum of Everything’s showcase at MONA in Tasmania.
