Sydney Ball was born in 1933 in Adelaide, South Australia. In 1962 Ball moved to New York and enrolled at the Art Students League of New York, where he studied under Theodoros Stamos. During this period Ball met and was influenced by many of “The Irascible 18”, including Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. Ball’s first solo show was in 1965 at the Westerly Gallery.
Ball returned to Australia in 1965 helping to bring abstract techniques to the attention of Australian artists.
