Joel Plevin is a 21 year old from Wilmington in the Flinders Rangers currently studying in Adelaide. He paints in a variety of styles varying from realism to abstract. His artwork is heavily influenced by the surrounding area which he loves to explore through motorbike and mountain bike riding. I
He has been painting for the last 8 years and had his first solo exhibition in 2011 at the Port Augusta Cultural Centre which displayed 20 paintings. Since then he has had a number of solo and shared exhibitions across South Australia and won a selection of art prizes. He likes to work with a lot of colour, so many of his paintings are very bright. When painting he always begins with an orange background.
By doing this it gives his paintings a warmth and glow, which helps represent the magnificence of this area. Through the years his painting styles have changed however his direction of painting hasn’t. When painting he has one aim and that is to capture the charm and beauty ofthe South Australian landscape.
