Wellington exhibitions. Metropolis at Matchbox Studios. Exhibition Runs 20th August- 1st September 2013. Opening Night Tuesday 20th August 5.30-8pm. Vibrant new art by up-and-coming Wellington artists!
A group exhibition by seven up and coming Wellington artists, sharing their unique perspectives on the City – among other facets of modern life.
Their fresh, vibrantly colorful artwork betrays influences of the great European artists of the turn of the last century, along with American pop art, comic strips, and computer-generated images.
The themes are distinctly New Zealand: from Wellington street scenes to portraiture, to mythical-surreal, and more conceptual imagery.
Most of the artwork in this show stays with the traditional format of oil or acrylic on canvas, but there is no backward looking stuffiness about these artist’s work!
