David Lee Pereira


“This anthropomorphic portrait is a celebration of identity and community, the ocelot looking up to the blue sky standing tall above the skyline of Benalla as a representation of endless possibilities and limitless opportunity. The work embodies pride in the blended contemporary Australian experience.”

About David

David Lee Pereira is a visual artist, engaging in the realms of paintings, illustrations, large-scale murals, and public installations. Pereira draws influence from impressionist and surrealist artists, paying homage to baroque ikebana and Dutch still-life. His floral expressions range from beautifully brutal to joyous and intimate, brimming with narrative and symbolism.

Curator’s Choice

Zammit says, “Pereira’s attention to detail is evident in his work, his creations weave a beautiful symphony of light and shade. I am a little perplexed as to why Pereira hasn’t been chosen more frequently for street art festivals given the quality of his art.”
