Tim Storrier AM (b. 1949), painter, studied at the National Art School from 1967 to 1969. In 1968 he became the youngest artist ever to win the Sulman Prize; and held his first solo exhibition at Australian Galleries, Melbourne in 1969. In the 1970s he went several times to paint in central and outback Australia, variously accompanying Grant Mudford and Wesley Stacey, John Olsen, Vincent Serventy and Stuart Purves. In 1983 he held his first solo exhibition in London, from which three works were purchased by the Museum of Modern Art, New York. In 1984, when he won the Sulman again, he visited Egypt on commission from the West Australian businessman Sir Garrick Agnew; the exhibition Tickets to Egypt at the state galleries of New South Wales and Western Australia resulted. A long-term resident of Bathurst, New South Wales, Storrier has been included in many group exhibitions and his work is represented in major public collections. His Hieronymus Bosch-inspired self-portrait The histrionic wayfarer won him the 2012 Archibald Prize.
