Born to Dutch parents, Herman Pekel demonstrated an early interest in art that led him, in his youth, to study plein air painting with Roger Webber, Ernest Buckmaster and Lance McNeill. 

He commenced a Fine Arts degree at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology under the tuition of Dale Hickey and Jeffrey Makin in 1981. Like many young artists of his generation, he flirted with Abstract Expressionism before returning to an Australian realist base with an emphasis on strong painterly technique.

Environmental issues are of paramount concern to Pekel and this veneration of nature is reflected in the landscape panoramas he paints. The scope of his pictorial world ranges from soft, cosy, draped interiors to dynamic industrial scenery, tempestuous Australian vistas and romantic European reminiscences.

Pekel’s numerous art awards include the the Alice Bale Watercolour Prize, 1989, 1993; the Camberwell Watercolour Prize (1989, 1993 and 1995); the Camberwell Travelling Scolarship (1989); the Waverley Prize (2003) and an Award of Excellence at the 2012 Shanghai Zhujiajiao International Watercolour Biennial. In 1994, he was invited by the National Taiwan Art Institute to participate in a book and travelling exhibition of selected artists from Australia, the United States and Taiwan.
