Through his paintings, Hayes examines the relationship between the global and the personal; strength and vulnerability and how they are linked.

‘The story is mine, but as always, seeks to find common ground by some invisible thread, with the viewer’, says Hayes.

Artworks with a glossy veneer and a bright candy palette provide the viewer with an initial sense of familiarity and fun, often belying the deeper narrative of subject matter.

David Hayes artwork is rooted in popular culture stylistically but explores the changing themes of masculinity via representations and contrasts of theme and colour. His influences include traditional figures of the pop art movement such as Warhol and Lichtenstein, yet he continues to evolve his style with influences of current artists.

The exhibition is showing from 8th – 26th November 2022 at Mitchell Fine Art in Arthur St, Fortitude Valley Brisbane.

An exhibition opening will be held on Friday 11th November, from 6 - 8pm with the artist in attendance.

David Hayes will also present an Artist Talk on Saturday 12th November from 2pm. This is a wonderful opportunity for art lovers to learn more about his practice as he discusses his inspiration and techniques.

Mitchell Fine Art is located at 86 Arthur St in Fortitude Valley. The gallery is open 6 days a week and provides free onsite parking.
