Michelangelo Art School – art classes –

Currans Hill artist Phil Carrero started as an impressionable 16 year old drawing charcoal portraits through the streets of Buenos Aires. He worked his way up from drawing to painting and begun to sell his works a few years later.
Phillip graduated in 1969 as a primary and elemental teacher, in a family where dozens of direct relatives are school teachers. His passion for art and teaching nature would come together some time later, in the new world.
Coming to Australia in 1973 , at the age of 23, Mr Carrero continued his studies in Art and completed an art apprenticeship to get himself better acquainted with portraiture painting. Meanwhile, for almost ten years produced and sold over 70 ship portraits and marine paintings. -After those years in the 70’s he begun getting around 12 commissions a year for just portrait work. That’s the point when he begun to make a living out of painting-, he recalls. He paints in the Traditional, Realistic style … English and Italian schools, his portraits sometimes resemble the Grand Manner style of the 19th and 20th centuries in England and later, Europe and the New World.
(extracted from “Artist has brush with thieves”, Macarthur Advertiser, January 2004)
In the late nineties Phillip proposed to the Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre to paint sports portraits of athletes that had competed in Sydney through the years. The proceeds would go towards buying poles for up and coming pole vaulters. After a due verification of credentials he was provided the wall space and the exposure which made this possible!

This marks an important stage in Phillip’s timeline in that his passions of painting and athletics came together. 90% and more of his commissions from then on were paintings from athletes in action. Some went to display at the Olympic Centre, others direct to athletes, while some went to form collections overseas.
