Dane Lovett


Since graduating from university in 2004, Australian artist Dane Lovett has had three solo shows in Sydney and Queensland including Bellevue Rivals, which explored the shadier side of contemporary gambling culture and greyhound racing. He also won a Qantas Spirit of Youth award, and is featured on the Noise site.

As part of his prize he will travel to Europe and the U.S. later in the year. But his immediate priorities are working toward a show at the Art Melbourne fair and doing the artwork for the new album by Eskimo Joe, one of the hottest new acts in Australia.
