Arvana Art creates one-of-a-kind art that is the result of a collaborative effort from start to finish. One artist might sketch the image onto the canvas, another will block colors, another add shape and definition, another apply the finishing touches of detail, highlights, and textures. Finally, a completed piece has the combined input of each participating artist bringing passion and vision to the collaboration. The results are amazing and unique works for art lovers, collectors and venues.
ARTISTS (Joe Occhipinti & Injung Woo)
I’ve developed the skill of finding inspiration and beauty everywhere, including other artists. This is the motivation behind starting Arvana Art Collaboration. The aim of Arvana was to bring together artists who complimented each other’s styles and together could produce unique artwork that feeds the soul.
I live in Melbourne Australia. I am self-taught, and I love experimenting with vibrant colours, textures including layered palette knife and raw brush. I am heavily influenced by Pop Art, Street Art and Surrealism.
Art should allow both artist and the viewer to get lost in the artwork, to feel good, to be inspired. I work to bring this passion into all my exhibits and commissioned works.
Wiz a.k.a. Injung Woo
I am a mixed-media artist from Seoul, South Korea now living in Melbourne, Australia. I developed a love for art at an early age, enrolling into Deokwon Arts School before travelling much of Europe and Asia, and earning a formal art degree from Ewha Womans University.
My narrative portraits of individuals are an attempt to capture the story and mood of the subject with suggestive, saturated, Earth-toned layers of colour and texture.
Since my first exhibition in 2006, my work has been sold locally and internationally to collectors all over the world. My murals can be viewed in several venues in Perth and Melbourne, Australia; Seoul, South Korea; and Kenting, Taiwan. I have had the honor to be featured in magazines and periodicals including Cracker (June 2014) and Perth Madang (October 2012).
