The crown of ‘Australia’s Greatest Living Artist’ often hovers over the heads of several contenders at any one time. However as far as the mainstream media is concerned John Olsen reigns unchallenged at the present moment. I’m not sure if Olsen particularly likes the description but there is something to be said for its pleasing simplicity – competitive nuances notwithstanding. My guess is that Tim Storrier is widely seen to be a future title holder. Its an interesting game trying to guess who might be up for the job in 20 years time – Rick Amor or Euan Macleod? There are also several indigenous artists who would likely be up for consideration. Any other suggestions?
