Prevalent and celebrated street artist Benjamin Reeve launches his solo exhibition, ‘Ornament’ tomorrow at Toowoomba’s newest artist run creative space, ‘No Comply’ Gallery.
Exploring the nostalgia of childhood, ‘Ornament’ plays on the hallowed and harrowing memories of youth. Using spray enamel, inks, oil and acrylic paint, Reeve creates powerful portraits on paper and wood. Each unique piece, representing a mirrored snapshot of self-inquiry.
The official launch opens Friday 24th October from 7pm – 9pm with the works hanging until 15th November.
Well worth the 1.5 hour trek (from Brisbane), Toowoomba has plenty to offer this weekend. Make the most of the journey and stick around for Kontraband Studios first birthday party on Sunday to see live painting from a number of artists including Brisbane’s own Reals and John Kaye and Perth’s Ayres.
As Ayres is making the long winded journey from the other side of Australia to catch Benjamin Reeve and party with the Kontraband kids, we think you should too.
Where ever across our great nation you are tomorrow, Tbar is the place to be.
