Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Art on Friday 25 April 2014

Sydney-based artist Gunjan Aylawadi does some pretty impressive work with the old humble sheet of paper. Aylawadi says she developed this method of using paper ‘after spending a log time exploring paper sculptures’. She also explains on her website what she loves most about creating these pieces: ‘What I enjoy most about making my work […]

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in New Illustration on Friday 10 February 2012

Having recently made my way to Sydney, I have begun thoroughly immersing myself in the creative depth it has to offer. As a progression of my existing work, my current output has split along two divergent tracks.

Mind-bending video by Sydney artist Dro Carey

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in Video on Friday 21 October 2011

Caffeine is a psychoactive drug, and long-term, heavy usage may scramble your synapses to the point where you can see through time. Sydney-based artist Dro Carey seems to live permanently in that pre-dawn netherworld that one finds one’s self after a several-week coffee bender.

Drawings By A Writer

Greg Clennar Reader Find

By Greg Clennar in New Illustration on Wednesday 14 September 2011

Taking famous celebrity photographs from the last century and applying a candid, perhaps juvenile, sketching ethic, Drawings By A Writer is the hillarious project of Sydneysider, Simon Friedlander.

Stephanie Yazbek Reader Find

By Stephanie Yazbek in New Art on Saturday 10 September 2011

Expressing an air of freedom, Sydney artist Lachie Hinton’s work explodes with colour and personality as he drops all limitations to ‘deviate from standard and expectation’. Combining charcoal, ink and acrylic, Hinton breathes life into his caricatures’, creating quirky, eccentric and beautiful subjects.

Karlee Rawkins

Kate McCarthy Reader Find

By Kate McCarthy in New Art on Saturday 3 September 2011

I’ve loved Karlee Rawkins’ work for years, for its spontaneity, rawness and honesty. It has an edgy innocence reminiscent of Brett Whiteley, or is it just the recurrent zoo themes? Or the Sydney-ness?

Jason Howe

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Wednesday 22 June 2011

We are blown away by the rich, vibrant, mystical, mischevious world of Australian artist Jason Howe, who ‘draws directly from a subconscious drenched in the hallucinogenic, technicolour imagery of Saturday morning cartoons’. His work was most recently on show at Sydney’s Monstrosity Gallery.

Finlay Duggan

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Thursday 12 May 2011

I love the bold colours and cheeky gaping aesthetic in the work of Sydney-based artist and designer, Finlay Duggan. She creates awesome masks imbued with wide-eyed menace, and her illustration work wouldn’t be out of place plastered across the giant walls of a disused Brooklyn factory. Respect.

Katherine Edney

By Michelle Wilding in New Art on Tuesday 8 March 2011

They say hands are one of the toughest body parts to paint. However, Katherine Edney seems to have no difficulty there. The Sydney artist studied Fine Arts for seven years at UNSW and has been exhibiting her hyper-realistic work ever since. I love her interpretation of lighting and shade when painting body parts.

Interview with Australian artist Anthony Bartok

Mark Barwald Reader Find

By Mark Barwald in New Art on Thursday 12 August 2010

I caught up with emerging Sydney artist, Anthony Bartok, at the opening of his current show at Global Gallery titled Modern Living. I’ve been following his work for a few years and every show is a stylistic 180 degree departure from his previous one. This one is no exception. I’m not sure which is more unnerving, the grey Bacon-esque serial killer portraits from 2009, or this current series of large-scale, empty interiors, painted from real-estate sales collateral.

New Beastman at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory

Michelle Wilding Reader Find

By Michelle Wilding in Cool Travel on Friday 9 April 2010

Beastman (aka Brad Eastman) is back. I’m always fond of the Sydney artist’s work spontaneously popping up in my life, and was pleasantly surprised when I went to see a mate’s band gig last week and noticed his trademark screaming monster crisply adorning the walls of Oxford Art Factory. It was so new, the smell of fresh paint lingered through our favourite basement venue with every guitar chord.

Kevin Tran’s Between Two Worlds

Michelle Wilding Reader Find

By Michelle Wilding in New Art on Monday 7 December 2009

Kevin Tran’s use of colour, shape, texture and composition throughout his Between Two Worlds exhibition is absolutely enchanting. There’s so much depth oozing out of these simplistic animal paintings. Lovely work from this Sydney-born artist.
