(Dystopia, an imagined place, or state in which everything is unpleasant or bad) these paintings explore the urban environment focusing on graffiti street art.’ Happy birthday’ is from a series of paintings that originate from an old abandoned Geelong Electrical Power station, now re-birthed as ‘The Powerhouse’ art hub and graffiti gallery. The factory was a magnet for underground graffiti artists, making ever-changing backdrops for my paintings, and during winter months, the light was perfect for chiaroscuro effect.
Each painting includes a rainbow motif, the use of rainbow flags has a long tradition; they are displayed in many cultures around the world as a sign of diversity and inclusiveness, of hope and of yearning, as well as homosexual pride.
