Adam Dutkiewicz: Sunlight 2010, acrylic on canvas, 95.3 x 75 cm

This is the archive of Dr Adam Jan Dutkiewicz, artist, writer, art historian, researcher, editor, publisher, book designer, proof reader, catalogue designer, exhibition curator and specialist in South Australian art and enthusiast for post-war architecture and design.

It includes material concerning Moon Arrow Press, his small publishing house, and earlier ventures in publishing, his history projects for other organisations, his essays on art and art history, and his own artistic output as a painter and photographer.

Adam is the second son of Polish-origin Australian modernist painter Wladyslaw Dutkiewicz, and nephew of Ludwik Dutkiewicz, abstract and expressionist painter and botanical artist at the State Herbarium in Adelaide. His brother Michal Dutkiewicz is an illustrator, comic book artist and commercial artist par excellence (a true wizard in Photoshop) and his sister Ursula a ceramist, sculptor and mosaic artist based in Melbourne.

He is an Honorary Life Member and Past President of the Royal South Australian Society of Arts Incorporated, and was art critic for The Advertiser and The Independent Weekly in Adelaide and the South Australian contributing critic for Business Review Weekly around the turn of the century. He also wrote for Art Monthly Australia (online) and was contributing editor for Australian Modern Design, published in Brisbane. He has exhibited his paintings in Sydney and Adelaide. He is currently Honorary Historian for the Royal South Australian  Society of Arts, having completed editing and compiling volume one of A Visual History: The Royal South Australian Society of Arts, 1856-2016 in 2016, which featured the early history, Presidents, Officials and Honorary Life Members of the society. He is currently engaged with producing volume two, featuring other significant artists, from 1909 until the present.

To date Adam has authored, co-authored, contributed to or edited (and often designed) 14 books on South Australian art and its artists, all of which can be investigated on this site.
