Kym HART

Kym Robert Laurence HART, second eldest son of Pro Hart, was born in 1963 and educated at the local Broken Hill High School. Opportunities to study under many different teachers (artists), including his internationally famous father Pro Hart afforded him a unique foundation from which he has developed his individual styles and various techniques.

Kym’s distinctively naïve style has resulted in his works becoming popular and forming part of a number of private collections within Australia and overseas. Although predominantly working in oils, the range of mediums adopted by Kym include gouache, watercolors, etching, monotypes and block printing.

He has exhibited throughout most regional areas of Australia and all major cities Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns, Melbourne, Darwin, Adelaide and Perth having literally hundreds of successful exhibitions with solo exhibitions been at Proud’s Gallery, Sydney, Banco Fine Arts, Qld, Australian Gallery and Adelaide amongst others. Group exhibitions include Barry Stern Gallery, Outback art prize, BMW, The Sydney Gallery, Big Boys, Toys, Merrill Lynch Corporate exhibition Sydney, Darling Harbour Exhibition Centre and at the Gold Coast International.

Kym is regularly commissioned to paint murals and some of these Australian companies include Grey Hound Pioneer – Bus, Kendell Airlines – SAAB 340 17million dollar airplane, Broken Hill Airport, Helicopter Mural, Australian Green Poles – Arid Zone Artists and KAR59 – Kidney Car Rally. He has featured in documentaries and publications in varied media including Australian Art Auction



Records, Better House and Gardens, New Idea, Australian Post, Dogs – Life, Kendall In-flight Magazine and the Discovery Magazine. The Troy Dan Show – Discovery Channel, World Around Us and ABC Australian Stories. In 2005 he was selected in the finals of the Cromwell Prize, which toured around America and Europe.

Having travelled from the centre of Australia to the tropical north, from the barren Simpson Desert to the southern coastal area as well as internationally, for Kym it is still the outback town of Broken Hill and the surrounding lands of New South Wales that have proven to be the most exciting place for him as an artist to work in. With the combination of its colourful history, vivid colours and vastly different landscapes, it is no wonder he draws inspiration from his beloved Broken Hill.
