David Cauchi

Auckland, New Zealand, b. 1970

David Cauchi’s work straddles the line between cartooning and painting, using a diagrammatic line-and-wash style to create quirky, ironic statements. His works often involve self-portraiture, satire and allegory. These emblematic, often cryptic images nevertheless have an implied narrative, which comments on art history, cultural foibles and the artist’s personal experiences, imbued with his trademark dark humour.  Cauchi  lives and works in Wellington.
