2020 Studio Artists
"I am a painter and street-artist. My work varies from figurative painting, drawing, printmaking and murals. I use a mix of materials, mostly acrylic, oil, charcoal and aerosol. My constant themes are animals, nature, heritage and characters of my own with bright colours and storytelling."
"My works are predominantly figurative, with a strong focus on women, pattern, and evoking a romantic, modern- vintage style. However, after an artists residency in rural Ireland in 2019, I have been branching out into landscapes. This is a totally new direction for me. It’s my intention to use my time at the Creative Space to discover a way to merge both the figurative and the local landscapes into one direction in my work."
Kevin Diallo is a Sydney-based artist originally from the Ivory Coast whose practice suggests Blackness in relationship to the future. Rooted in post-colonial discourse and race politics, Diallo’s work investigates how institutionalised ideas of Black and African authenticity can be deconstructed and challenged by means of juxtaposition through a variety of mediums, more particularly with alternative photographic processes, installations, sculptures and new media.
