Address: 110 Franklin Street, Melbourne 3000, Australia
Date: 31st July 2015
Opening Night 31st July 2015
Its been three years since controversial artist, Adrian Doyle’s last exhibition.
This is a long time for an artist that has had over 20 solo shows. But the Melbourne based urban artist has been busy doing almost everything. In the last three years Doyle has created his own reality show, created large scale public murals, he offended much of the urban art world by painting Rutledge lane Baby blue, and had one of his public art works changed after Doyle painted a portrait of his dad on the cross. More recently he created an art project for Disney’s Tomorrow Land.
The award-winning artist will be pushing his well-known critique on the Australian Suburban lifestyle. In his new show. ”Never forget to remember” In this show, Doyle’s personal suburban experience has been explored through installation, painting and sculpture.
In one of his artworks, Doyle has controversially built a gold bullion house out of dollar coins. ‘The coins have become more valuable in their new context, the coins have changed, they have become an icon of the Australian dream.’ Claims Doyle.
His playful and iconic paintings have underling dark and honest portrayal of Doyle’s suburban experience. Doyle states, “Most Australian’s are guilty of suburbia, too understand suburbia is to understand Australia.”
Doyle’s craftsmanship and concepts will be sure to create talk. He is one of Australia’s hardest hitting artists.
Love or hate this controversial artist, his show is sure to be one of the most important shows of the year.
