.From the eastern beaches of Australia.....
With the beginnings of Surfdog & Artbird, and the characters portrayed, a gallery director representing the artist said of this new work “ the enormous energy, gaiety and presence that the artist exudes is also encapsulated in the works. Well travelled and with a probing interest in local cultures and people, these works reach out to the bolder nature of our current lives where art and its message pops out in a more explosive way.
The bold background and quirky characters is much more a reflection of the light and playful nature than a response to current trends. This artist has the confidence and courage to enter all fields of art direction, which only comes with maturity and very sound technical ability, and has a connection with youth and with those with more experience. “
Paintings by Surfdog & Artbird are fleshed out in the studio after an early start to the day, some exercise, and getting into the ocean before putting brush to canvas. Surfdog & Artbirds previous solo work has been selected in Australian Art Prizes, and represented in Australia and overseas.
Surfdog & Artbird paintings are only available through exhibitions at representative galleries, and their Limited Fine Art Editions are all available through the galleries, with only a select few available on this website. New galleries will be posted on the contact page soon.
