Born in Sydney, Australia, Blackman (1928-2018) is a celebrated 20th Century Australian artist who embraced figurativism. Largely self-taught, he worked as an illustrator before enmeshing himself in the community of artists in Melbourne, eventually co-founding the Antipodeans group who rejected Abstract Expressionism and other non-figurative styles.
