Dr Leslie Morgan was born in Britain of Anglo-Indian parents and emigrated to Australia in 1989. Morgan’s art practice spans thirty years and his artwork is represented in private and public collections including Museum Victoria and The National Sports Museum. His trans-disciplinary work in painting and writing concerns race, diaspora, migration cultural hybridity and whiteness. He is author of two books 'Illegal Action' (2005), 'The Significance of Diaspora Politics in the Visual Arts' (2008) and many journal articles. Morgan’s chapter on the work of Abdul Abdullah is published as part of 'Re-imagining the City' by Intellect books (2013).

24 March 2017 – Vale Leslie Morgan

It is with great sadness that I have to announce the passing of Leslie Morgan on 24 March 2017, in Melbourne. Leslie’s painting was his passion, and his work has very recently been acknowledged as an important contribution to late 20th century and early 21st century English and Australian art. He will be very much missed as a much loved son, brother, father, partner and friend. However, it is our hope that his spirit and commitment to all forms of justice will live on through his personal and artistic legacy, which is enormous.
