Portrait as a study of character

“When artist Rick Everingham approached Vince Anello to ask whether he could paint him for this year’s Brisbane Portrait Prize, the New Farm Deli owner had just one question for him: “Why?”

“I don’t normally enter prizes but Vince is a particular character and the brief for the prize is to do somebody prominent in Brisbane.”

Great write up in The Courier-Mail on the 4th of August about one of the entries into the 2020 Brisbane Portrait Prize.
