Political Cartoon of the Year
Undoubtedly David Rowe is one of Australia’s most popular and admired cartoonists. In his career he has covered almost every political issue and this year some of his best cartoons are included in the exhibition.
What distinguishes David is his certainty, his technical mastery and his creative capacity which together build an unmistakable style.
His cartoons are alarmingly broad and his caricatures wide ranging. His figures are always true in movement, his observation accurate and his work so well drawn and painted that it is a privilege to view them.
