Auguste Blackman was born in Melbourne in 1957 to his famous artist father, Charles Blackman OBE, and writer mother, Barbara Blackman OA. He was immersed in an artistic life from birth and began carving out his own world of images and creativity at an early age. Auguste began with painting and drawing and simultaneously pursued a career as a curator and printmaker before coming to life as a professional artist. In his work, Auguste harnesses his natural training inherited from his family culture together with formal training to create his own genre of figurative expressionism.

Auguste Blackman’s work has been exhibited widely across Australia and is held in a number of private collections both nationally and internationally.
