George Noel Gittoes,(born 7 December 1949) is an Australian artist, film producer, director and writer. In 1970, he was a founder of the Yellow House Artist Collective in Sydney. After the Yellow House finished, he conventional himself in Bundeena and since then has produced a large and varied output of drawings, paintings, films, and writings. Gittoes’ work has consistently expressed his social, political and humanitarian situation at the effects of injustice and conflict. Until the mid-1980s, this put-on was chiefly the end in Australia. But in 1986 he travelled to Nicaragua, and since after that the focus of Gittoes’ work has been largely international. He has travelled to and worked in many regions of conflict, including the Philippines, Somalia, Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, Bougainville, and South Africa. In recent years his accomplishment has especially centred upon the Middle East, with repeated visits to Israel and Palestine, Iraq, and Afghanistan. In 2011, he customary a further Yellow House, a multidisciplinary arts centre in Jalalabad, Afghanistan. Among many prizes, Gittoes has twice been awarded the Blake Prize for Religious Art.
