Bio for David Hinchliffe David Hinchliffe has had a unique career straddling politics, planning and painting. As a former Deputy Lord Mayor of Australia’s largest urban authority, Brisbane City Council, he was a member of the Council’s ground-breaking Urban Renewal Committee and Chairman responsible for Planning and Development from 2004-2008. He served in Civic Cabinet for 17 years and for 25 years represented Brisbane’s CBD and inner city suburbs to the north. Before his election in 1988, he was a practising artist. Since his retirement from politics, he has returned full time to painting. Like his politics, his subject matter is urban, focusing on painting the great cities of the world. He is represented by 12 galleries around the world and exhibits regularly in New York, London, Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo, with more than 90 solo exhibitions under his belt.
