It was on Dr Brendan Nelson’s commendation that Dr Gittoes was invited to speak at our upcoming event.
Dr George Gittoes AM, is an internationally renowned painter, film maker, photojournalist and peace activist. For over forty-five years he has been documenting conflicts zones and their impact throughout the world. He received an Honorary Doctorate from the University of NSW.
Initially he enrolled in an Arts/Law degree at the University of Sydney. After hearing American art critic, Clement Greenberg give a lecture in Sydney in 1968, he left university and went to New York on Greenberg’s recommendation. He went on to study painting and drawing at the Art Students League of New York. During that period he met Andy Warhol and had the opportunity to work at The Factory, shooting reels of film and witnessing Warhol’s process.
On his return to Australia he was co-founder of the famous Yellow House in Potts Point with Martin Sharp. It was a place for artists to live and work and was in homage to Van Gogh’s “unrealised dream to establish a centre for artists to live, work and exhibit at his house in Arles, France.”
Since then he has won the 1995 Wynne Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, for the work Open Cut (from the Heavy Industry series), the 1992 Blake Prize twice for Religious Art for the painting Ancient Prayer and in 1996 The Preacher. He has exhibited extensively in Australia and overseas, including a retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Houston has had his documentaries shown on the ABC, SBS and major international festivals.
Since 1986, when he made the film, Bullets of the Poets, in Nicaragua, he has been in the frontline of conflicts including documenting the Australian Defence Force as peacekeepers in Somalia and the Australian United Nations peacekeepers and observers in Western Sahara, Algeria, Sinai, Israel and Southern Lebanon in the early 1990’s. He has also worked independently in other arenas of conflict. Since the Taliban era prior to 9/11 he was focussing on the tribal belt of Paksitan and has extensive periods in that region.
Since the beginning of the Afghanistan war, he has spent extensive periods in that region. He travelled with Médecins sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders) in 2002, done four trips to Iraq and produced an acclaimed film, Soundtrack to War, and later Rampage.
In 2011, he set up the Yellow House in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, that is a mulit-disciplinary art centre similar to the former Yellow House in Sydney. It was part of a vision he had to take in outcasts, street kids and artists and to teach them artistic skills in the midst of an area of destruction where the Taliban rules. He lives there with his wife, Hellen Rose, who runs women’s media workshops and the place is flourishing. In 2015 he was awarded the Sydney Peace Prize.
A book on Dr Gittoes has recently been published.
