NAS Head of Studies Simon Cooper and artist Wendy Murray discuss poster art and the legacy of ’70s printmaking.
Simon Cooper has practiced and exhibited extensively throughout Australia and internationally. His work is held in numerous private and public collections throughout the world including the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; and the Seoul Metropolitan Museum of Art, South Korea. Since joining NAS in 2001 as Head of Printmaking, he has held other academic positions within the school including Acting Director, and is currently Head of Studies.
Wendy Murray is a Sydney-based Poster Maker and Arts Educator. Her artworks are informed by her knowledge of street art and graffiti and her interest in psycho-geography and the concept of the derive, or unplanned journey. Murray’s teaching practice is also diverse, lecturing at National Art School, developing and facilitating the Mesh Mash outreach program in western Melbourne and delivering screen-printing classes at Megalo Print Studio, Canberra.
