Danie Mellor has been recognised with a prestigious Australia Council Fellowship in 2016. He is one of eight accomplished Australian artists working across all art forms to receive this.
Australia Council Fellowships are granted only once in an artist’s lifetime to artists who demonstrate outstanding achievement on the national and international stage in their respective art form. The highly sought after fellowships aim to support artists to develop their practice, experiment, research and explore new ways to share their artistic vision with audiences.
