Born in Perth, Western Australia, Rolf moved to London at the age of twenty-two, financing himself through exhibitions of his work held in Australia.
In the mid 1950’s Rolf’s paintings were featured in the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy for two years running. While painting continued to be a private passion of his, it was for his television and stage performances
that Rolf became a household name. In recent years however he has devoted more time to painting and has had a number of one-man shows, including the ‘Rolf on Art’ exhibition at the National Gallery.
Rolf has been awarded the CBE, is a member of the Order of Australia and an honorary member of the Royal Society of British Artists, and has won many awards for his work in the entertainment industry. His life and work were further celebrated in a major BBC ‘Arena’ documentary entitled ‘Rolf Harris Paints his Dream’.
Rolf was named as the UK’s best selling published artist of 2011.
