Artief Art fair

I'm just back from a great few days at the Artief art fair in Belgium. The fair was held in Diest, which is not far from Brussels. This was a very unique fair to show at as it was housed at the Hallezaal which is an old fabric warehouse built in 1352. So you can imagine what a buzz it was to show my work in a building that dates 600 years before my own country was even colonised ;)...and in Belgium to make it even better!
It was a weekend of great art, great food and the best beer EVER!
Thanks to our amazing hosts Raf and Miranda who went out of their way to show us a few of the Belgium delicacies ;)
The pictures below of the Hallezaal as well as the Strychnin Gallery booth I was part of.

Artfair 21 and Blooom pics

More pics! Here are a few shots of the Strychnin Booths at this years Artfair 21 and Blooom fair that we have just returned from. This year we had a massive 100m2 and where showing the best of the best from Strychnin Gallery artists. The booths were broken up into artists environments this year which created a really interesting feel when walking through.
I guess I'm a little biased but think it's saying that the quality of the Strychnin Booths really stood out and above the rest;)

'Creature Feature' opening night

Finally I have some time to catch up on a bit of bloggy stuff. Here are some pics of the opening night of the Creature Feature show last month. It was a great opening with a heap of really interested people excited to see this type of artwork/sfx work closeup and in person.

'ArtFair 21' pieces

I've just spent the past week down in Cologne/Germany for this years Art Fair 21 and Blooom fair. This is the same fair in which I created the dolls house for last year.
This year I created 4 new pieces to go along with the others from my recent 'Organic Mechanics' collection.
All pieces are one off original sculptures, handmade from a mix of painted sculps, resins and recycled parts. The sculptures also come with a custom wood and leather base and are encased in plexiglass domes.
For info on availability and pricing you can contact Strychnin Gallery here, or take a look at the art fair presale.
