QAGOMA Foundation 2016 Annual Appeal Launch

Michael Zavros Bad Dad 2013

Zavros’s accomplished and compelling painting Bad dad was shortlisted for the 2013 Archibald Prize and will be familiar to many as a highlight of our ‘GOMA Q: Contemporary Queensland Art’ exhibition last year. Continuing an art-historical tradition that stretches from Caravaggio to Koons, this self-portrait reflects the artist’s interest in narcissism in the contemporary world, and is executed in a medium that superbly displays his technical virtuosity.
