What kind of work does Craig Ruddy do?

Craig Ruddy won the 2004 Archibald Prize for his charcoal drawing of David Gulpilil entitled Two Worlds.

Craig Ruddy’s portrait of the Aboriginal actor won both the $35,000 Archibald portrait prize and the People’s Choice Award in both Sydney and Melbourne.

However, another artist Tony Johansen, took legal action against the Art Gallery of New South Wales Trust over the portrait, arguing that because Ruddy predominantly used charcoal in his work, it was a drawing, not a painting, and therefore was ineligible for the prize. In June 2006, the NSW Supreme Court dismissed Johansen’s claims.

In August 2006, Craig Ruddy’s Two Worlds sold to a private collector at the Sotheby’s auction in Sydney for $312,000.

In 2010 Craig Ruddy won the Archibald People’s Choice Prize for his portrait of Warwick Thornton entitled The Prince of Darkness. Where was Craig Ruddy born
