Who is Leseley Wengembo?

A self taught artist from Papua New Guinea whose exceptional passion and talent gained him entry to the National Art School in Sydney.

Telling Lesley’s story through an exploration of his many art works, we will follow his quest to complete his entry into the 2021 Archibald Prize. 


The search for his subject, the face that will carry his hopes into the competition, will act as a backdrop of his exploration of Australian culture through the eyes of a young new generation artist - an extraordinary person on an extraordinary mission:

To heal the past and inspire youth  through art. 

We’ll learn about his story, journey to Australia, and what his art means to him as he searches for the perfect subject.
