The Ben Oakley Gallery takes great pride in the quality of the artists they chose and the exhibitions they curate. The next show is no exception. In addition we are pleased to announce that we are collaborating for the first time with the internationally recognised Woodbury House to present two fantastic artists who practice their craft in two totally different mediums. Schoony is represented by PSR and lives in the UK, he has carved out a heavyweight reputable name within the urban art scene for over ten years. His exquisite hyper real life casting sculptures are collected globally and sit handsomely side by side with many of todays modern masters. Themes vary from the importance and passion of anti-war and capitalism to a lighter viewpoint on portraying pop culture in his totally unique style.
Sweler is lucky enough to be dual based in Australia and the UK. He has been immersing himself in both countries Street art scenes and culture that have contributed to his beautifully stylistic and emotive paintings.
Using acrylics and spray paint on canvas Sweler has refined his skills painting in single block backgrounds and often vibrant flashes of colour that enable his other worldly characters to float in their own world as they transfix a somewhat innocent gaze on the viewer.
The success of each delicately painted character has a loveable purity yet carries a melancholic darker presence that endears you to them.
This is a classic example of the attractive style of curating Ben Oakley Gallery likes to assemble, two thoroughly dynamic artists with different styles and techniques.
From Schoony we are pleased to announce that his sculptures on show will be a first showing in a special prismatic colour way of the iconic Soldier Boy, Butterfly Kiss and The Bruiser and from Sweler a series of brand new paintings will be overlooking the whole experience.
A visual and aesthetic delight for everyone, and a must visit exhibition in October 2017.
