"It has honestly been the best week, and i'm so proud of these young artists - they rose to every challenge to produce such a tight and beautiful piece. Super proud of this one"

- Melanie Caple. 

Artist: Melanie Caple, Melbourne and Frankston High School 

Melanie graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting) from RMIT and holds a Masters of Arts Management.

As an artist, curator and arts manager, Melanie has worked in multiple capacities within the arts industry.

Over the last decade she has developed her practice to incorporate finely detailed oil paintings and large-scale exterior murals. Examining our relationship with the botanical world around us with a focus on immortalising a sense of place, she uses native flora to activate walls and canvases to draw attention to the fragility and vibrancy of our landscape.

Melanie has exhibited in various group exhibitions and has staged solo exhibitions around Melbourne and in Gippsland, including a major solo exhibition in 2015 at the Latrobe Regional Gallery as the recipient of the annual Dick Bishop Memorial Award.

Most recently she was a finalist in the 2019 KAAF Art Prize, the Winner of the 2016 People’s Choice Award in the Roi Art Prize, and a finalist in the 2018 Collins Place Art Prize. She has also been a selected mural artist for Frankston’s Big Picture Festival in 2021 and 2022.

Melanie divides her time between Melbourne’s north and her large painting studio in South Gippsland, and was the Project Manager for the Victorian showing of the Archibald Prize 2021
