Steve Jannar is a Sydney-based artist, and a member of Mosman, Bankstown, Liverpool, Oatley 101
& Southern Cross Art Societies.  He is essentially a figurative painter and his earlier period was very
much influenced by the Heidelberg School of Australian Impressionists, in particular by Streeton,
Roberts & Conder and in more recent times by Sydney Long.  Being an architect contributed to the
fact that many of his earlier works included the built environment in the Australian vernacular. 

Since 2008 he has returned to painting in acrylic paint rather than oil, and is painting on a larger scale,
freeing up his style and resulting in more dramatic works with greater impact.

Past & recent milestones include -
2007 – 1st Prize ‘Landscape’ painting section of the Sydney Royal Arts Show (Easter Show)
2011 – Finalist in both the Mosman & Paddington Art Prizes.
2014 – 1st Prize at the Sydney Royal Arts Show in the ‘Australian Birds and/or Flowers (natural setting)
2015 – Best in Show Combined Art Societies of Sydney (CASS) Art of Sydney Annual Awards Exhibition 
2015 – Solo exhibition at the Hazelhurst Gallery (Gymea – Sutherland Shire). 
2016 – Duo exhibition with Bing Wu at the historic Arthouse Hotel in Pitt St, Sydney
2016 – ‘Best in Show’ in the Oatley 101 Society of Artists Annual Members’ Exhibition. 
2017 – Winner of the Ardency $1,000 Oatley 101 Society of Artists prize.
2017 – Awarded the Liverpool Art Society Scholarship Prize.
2018 – Winner of the Oil/Acrylic Section at the CASS Art of Sydney Annual Awards Exhibition.  
2018 – Winner of Oatley 101 Society of Artists Annual Members’ Oil/Acrylic Section. 
2019 – Best in Show at the CASS Art of Sydney Annual Awards Exhibition.

 Artist's Statement:
“While studying architecture in 1972 one project was to design a new Court House in the town of Bega. 
It was at this time that I had my first, but fleeting view of the little town of Central Tilba.  A beautiful l
ittle town where in later years I spent some time there, painting most of the township – but knowing
that a feature painting of the Hotel and the General Store beckoned.  I finally got to paint both
subjects last year, with the ‘General Store’ winning the Oatley 101 Society of Artists Members’
Exhibition in August, and now the thrill of taking out the CASS Best in Show Award at the 2019 Art of
Sydney Awards Exhibition.”  Steve.
