King Street Gallery on William

Robert Hirschmann

Abstract artist Robert Hirschmann was born in Narembeen, on the Western Australian Wheatbelt in 1968. Hirschmann graduated from the National Art School Sydney in 1990, with a Diploma in Fine Arts, specialising in painting.

Hirschmann has had 21 solo exhibitions to date. Robert has been represented by King Street Gallery since 1991.

Hirschmann was a friend of Elisabeth Cummings and John Peart, subsequently, his connection to Wedderburn is significant. Hirschmann’s work has been selected for numerous group exhibitions across Australia, namely Raw Wedderburn (Curated by Sioux Garside), Stand up Close (remembering Ron Lambert) and Laverty Collection at the Union Club.

Hirschmann has won both the National Art Award in South Australia and the Gruner Landscape Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

Hirschmann’s pieces can be found in numerous regional and corporate art collections such as Benalla Regional Art Gallery, Hawkesbury Regional Art Gallery, Wangaratta Exhibitions Gallery and Campbelltown Bicentennial City Art Gallery, as well as Artbank and the National Art School Collection.
