The Archibald Prize turns 100 in 2021. Coincidently, the winning portrait, painted by Melbourne artist Peter Wegner, depicts another 100 year old, artist Guy Warren.

Hear artist Peter Wegner and his subject Guy Warren in conversation with TV and radio presenter Yumi Stynes about the joys and challenges of being creative in a global pandemic and the stories behind the winning portrait.

Peter initially painted Guy as part of his Centenarian Project – portraits of 100 people who have reached 100 years of age. Guy still works in his studio and exhibits regularly and is himself an Archibald Prize winner from 1985. His winning portrait of Bert Flugelman is part of the exhibition Archie 100: A Century of the Archibald Prize.
