William Mackinnon has developed a unique vernacular of magical realism through his painting practice, bringing together the real and imaginary to dramatic effect. For the Basil Sellers Art Prize 5, Mackinnon will produce a video work on the subject of his creative practice, and the role that sport plays in his life, in addition to a series of large-scale paintings about the convergence of sport and life.

William Mackinnon is represented by Hugo Michell Gallery, Adelaide; and Jan Murphy Gallery, Brisbane.
