Julian Meagher’s portrait of Johnathan Thurston

Julian Meagher’s portrait of superstar National Rugby League player Johnathan Thurston is on the cover of the October issue for Rugby League Player Magazine.  Meagher was a finalist in the 2015 Archibald Prize with his portrait of Daniel Johns. The Thurston portrait is part of a suite of works from the ‘Code’ series which shines a light on the vulnerability of some of Australia’s biggest football heroes, dramatising the precarious fragility in each man’s isolated facial expression.

Julian Meagher’s solo exhibition ‘Alone in the Sun’ is on from 3 – 27 November 2015.
