Coastal living-inspired oil paintings by Craig Parnaby

Craig Parnaby is an Australian artist focused on figurative oil paintings. Most of his pieces are inspired by everyday life nearby the coast.

Through his paintings Craig creates a unique visual iconography of coastal living. His imagery pays homage to the architectural forms and easy-going lifestyle of the urban coastal landscape. Craig’s perspective is positive, youthful and essentially humanist in its celebration of life’s simple pleasures. His strong sense of colour and form capture everything we love about the beauty of the coastline and the pleasure of being near the water. The tonal variations of umber beach figures in contrast to the turquoise sea and raspberry reds and oranges of bathers’ beach apparel create warmth that glows on the canvas.
