  • Categories:ALL, CONTEMPORARY

Palla Jeroff was born in Urmchi, Western China in 1957. At the age of 17, the Chinese Government selected Jeroff to study the fine art of oil painting and drawing at the University of Xian where he received a Bachelor of Arts. After his graduation, Jeroff became an Art Professor and engaged in teaching and research for many years.

Since arriving in Australia in 1985 the artist has continued to gain recognition for his paintings, both nationally and internationally. Jerrof has been invited to exhibit throughout the world including Germany, France, China and America, stimulating huge demand for his paintings.

The great diversity of the artists work is shown through his ability to use different mediums such as watercolour, acrylic and oils. In discussing his work Jeroff states “I’ve been searching for a pure art language for many years. In my pursuit I have experimented with quite different styles over the years. Finally, after 20 years I believe I have found a solution. It is not what you paint but how you paint it.”
