True Blue Larry, 2016 (SOLD)


In 1992 I was commissioned by the Melbourne City Council to create “Larry La Trobe” a bronze dog, for the redevelopment of Swanston Walk. He quickly became a favored sculpture of Melbourne. He provides a photo opportunity for tourists and locals alike and his golden ears are the result of much patting He has become the City’s dog. In 2018 Larry was relocated to the front of the Melbourne Town Hall due to the Metro development. Larry is my faithful companion and makes an appearance in many of my works. He has his own Wikipedia page and Facebook Page.

This is an original painting on canvas. It is Titled “True Blue Larry”. “True Blue” is an Australian term meaning dinky di, or honest and real. This work has many textures and colours that the photo does not truly show. I encourage you to come and see it in the flesh and to pat some of the other Larry artworks in the Gallery.
