Herman Pekel was born to Dutch parents in Melbourne, Victoria in 1956. Herman is an artist of energy and enthusiasm. He is able to see a painting in almost any subject matter and is capable of producing award winning work in watercolour, gouache or oil.

Environmental issues are a great concern to Herman and his love of the landscape reflects that in almost everything he paints. He produces paintings of strong design and powerful impact – every brushstroke vibrant and visible. The scope of Herman’s work has ranged from dynamic industrial scenery to soft, draped interiors and broad Australian landscapes, which indicates the creatively fearless nature of this unique artist.

In 1994 the National Taiwan Art Institute asked Herman to participate in a book and travelling exhibition with selected artists from Australia, USA and Taiwan.

Herman exhibits his work regularly in the USA.

His works are featured in the books “Australian Impressionist and Realist Artists” which features Australian Artists and was compiled by Tom Roberts, “120 Years of Watercolourists”, by the Australian Realist Artists, “Artists and Galleries of Australia and New Zealand” by Max Germaine and “Profile on Contemporary Watercolours”.
