Bestiola’s Exhibition

Bestiola’s Exhibition

What a great night!

Lots of really really fantastic art!!  Soooo many talented people it makes me very glad to be apart of the whole event.  It was also wonderful to meet many of the artists and even discuss a few techniques and hints with them.

The exhibition runs until the 17th November, so get yourself down there if you can to Little Creatures Brewery, Mews Rd, Fremantle… grab a beer or a cider and take a wander… you wont regret it..!  I will post more photos soon, it’s just too late now and I can hardly keep my eyes open!!

Here’s mine… “Mo Faux”

Well, it’s all over with and I have to be honest, I’m quite relieved! The build up to the event for myself personally was quite stressful… I hadn’t ever done a live painting gig before… and not that I’m a shy person, that doesn’t phase me… it was just hoping what I’d prepared would be good enough on the night… something that was worthy I guess of such a fantastic event!     There were many fine artists involved, and as exciting as that is, it can be quite daunting also.

But I have to say well done to the organisers, (and thank you!)  it was a fabulous night, with stacks of people in attendance. The art exhibition was wonderful.  My favourites were by Eve Young, Cherry, Ali J, Steven Christie’s,  Wanjie Song’s and Simon Boxer’s apocalyptic images were very cool.  Wish I’d had more time to check them all out.

At any rate, the night went very smoothly, besides the fact there was nearly no light for me to see by, it was just lucky the old hubby had brought along one of his little handy flash lights.

So I painted from 6pm till literally 10pm when the last band finished. The other artist, “Blake Poole” did an awesome spray painting,which he finished… and I’m sad to say, I didn’t get to complete mine on the night…which was a little disappointing.  Shoulda moved my butt a bit faster I think…  Next time (if I ever do this kinda thing again) I’ll definitely choose a simpler design!! Live and learn.  Three band’s also played opposite us as we painted, so it was really great painting to live music.  Billy Rogers, The Lonely Brothers & The Voltaire Twins.  I really enjoyed the Lonely Brothers, who are ALL chicks!

So here’s a few photo’s from the night.. unfortunately I didn’t get to take any photo’s of the art exhibition that was on, and there were some really crazy beautiful pieces on display.

Busily painting – trying to get it all completed.
