Travels With My Art


Join award-winning filmmaker and artist Michael Rubbo as he discusses his book Travels With My Art, revealing a journey into his creative heart.


Michael’s voyage into painting was sparked during the making of his Emmy award-winning drama about Vincent Van Gogh – Vincent and Me, when, by necessity, he recreated 30 Van Gogh artworks in oils and discovered the delight of painting in plein air. The film’s cast included 114-year-old Jean Clamant, the world’s oldest actress – a woman who had encountered Van Gogh when she was aged 13.


Michael has written and directed over 50 films, including documentary, fiction and children’s feature films. He has been a Fulbright scholar, lectured at Harvard, helped found Film Australia and worked as head of ABC’s documentaries. Accompanied by a visual display, Michael will draw together two major complementary threads in his life – art and filmmaking, while affirming the important uplifting and healing role of creativity in our lives.
