“This is a colourful collection of artworks by some of our favourite artists.”
On the side wall, Miss Van, Mujer Parajo, 2014. “I love her fine brush work and somehow she manages to translate these fine images into huge murals on walls around the world.”
Directly below, D*FACE, Flutterdies, 2011. The butterflies, titled ‘Flutterdies’, 2011, is by the English artist D*FACE. You can’t see in this image but the bodies of the butterflies have been replaced with the nozzles of spray cans. Apparantly he kept a bowl of spare nozzles in his studio and one day a moth died in the bowl and was camaflaged. This is where he got the idea. Bit morbid but very pretty!
Above the door is another work by D*FACE with obvious references to Lichtenstein. “He generously donated this piece to our February Bushfire Appeal Auction at Leonard Joels and we bought it as a memento.”
The painting in the centre is REKA’s Nature Morta, 2015. “I felt is was a great new direction for his art and had to have the first one!
Below is Ron English’s Warhol Skull Quad, 2011. “One of the godfathers of graffiti and street art this was a very lucky pick up at an obscure auction house.”
