Project Five, Volume Six, lights up the Darling Quarter with a multimedia exhibition featuring internationally acclaimed artists and musicians. The project is a public art initiative of aMBUSH Gallery that features a live art event, public art exhibition and art auction.
The pop-up studio will star Askew One, Kyle Hughes Odgers, Alex Lehours and 23rd Key who paint in front of a live audience on the weekend.
The work of each artist is derived primarily from the street art aesthetic. From Hughes Odgers’ odd conundrums to Lehours’ beautiful pop-art-reminiscent melodramas and 23rd Key’s almost hyper realism, the free open-air show will be a delightful smorgasbord of modern imagination. Its location reinforces the public ownership of art and its power to transform even the most dismal concrete jungles into colourful kaleidoscopes.
This is an experience which is sure to inspire Sydneysiders to pursue their own creative aspirations. (LR)
