Syd Ball was born in Adelaide, and has exhibited his work in Australia and internationally for almost 50 years and in Sydney since his first solo exhibition at Watters Gallery in 1966. He was Senior Lecturer in Art at the City Art Institute (now COFA) from 1974-88, and currently lives at works at Glenorie on Sydney’s outskirts.
