Murals Wedding

Hello, hello!

why did I write hello twice? Because I have two things to share!

first up, if you're in Sydney, (or going to be in Sydney at some point this month), I've got a new series of work in a group exhibition that opens tonight, 6-8pm, at Firstdraft gallery

The show runs until July 28 and has been expertly curated by Talia Smith. The show's called "You're My Number One" and basically it's a collection of works that play around with celebrity, fandom and popular culture, with humour and heart, bringing together artists from Thailand and New Zealand as well as Australia. 

The complete list of artists in the show is Zoe Wong, Daniel Mudie Cunningham, d.a.n.c.e art club, Janet Lilo, Natasha Matila-Smith, Marc Etherington, Low Cost Cosplay Group, Raquel Caballero, and me.

Click here for a link to the website Concrete Jungle where they have a list of "ten shows in Sydney this month that will drag you in from the cold", because in awesome news; this exhibition was put at number 3 on the list!... (ha, although surely they should've put a show with the title "You're my number One" in at their number 1.)

Ha, but so ok, that was the first thing, really hope you get a chance to see this show. The second thing I wanted to quickly share is here's a few photos of a mural I've just painted in a new carpark they're building at the Clayton campus of Monash Uni. The mural's called "Murals Wedding" and it's made up of forty something different paintings all mingling together by the elevators. 

A huge thanks to the team at MUMA (the Monash University Museum of Art) for this incredible opportunity, it was so much fun and I loved getting to paint on this scale. 

And so yeah, the carpark is meant to open in a couple of weeks and the mural will be there permanently so really hope you get a chance to see it, and really hope you like it!

And in the meantime thanks heaps for reading, hope you're having a nice day and if you're in Sydney hopefully see you tonight at Firstdraft!
