“Selby Warren was a bushman and rabbit-trapper who spent his entire life in the village of Trunkey Creek in the central west of NSW. He started painting in his late seventies using brushes made with his own hair. Before picking up these brushes he was known among his fellow workers as a keen storyteller with a particular passion for the poems and ballads describing the lives of local stockmen and bushrangers. He would illustrate his stories and poems, using a stick in the dirt or charcoal on the back of a shovel, during tea breaks. While the work of Selby Warren is little known today he enjoyed a level of success in the 1970s during which time he exhibited at the Rudy Komon Gallery.” Ref: Patrick Hartigan, art critic and artist, 2015.
