Bruce Petty

1929 -

Bruce Petty's bold 'scribbles' are as at home on the screen as on the page.

His work in several media is characterised by his depiction of multiple interconnected concepts rather than a single idea.

Although best known for his political cartoons in The Age for more than three decades, Petty was an Oscar-winning animated film maker, an etcher, an AFI award-winning documentary maker and a creator of 'machine sculptures', one of which was exhibited in the Australian Pavilion at World Expo '85.
