Artist: Johnny Romeo
Location: perth
1 - 16 APRIL, PERTH CITY, OFFICIAL OPENING SUNDAY 12 APRIL 2-4PM Open Studio is a hand selected series of works by the artist from his studio. Referred to as a bombastic neo-expressionist pure pop painter with a lot to say about modern life, Johnny Romeo's work deals with the way we construct our identities from the vast array of images that pop culture immerses us in.
An Australian born painter, Romeo's work is critically acclaimed in its attempt to represent a visual type of poetic and rhythmic blending of word, symbol and image. He mixes pop techniques with street art to critique some of the consumerist sentiments pervasive in society and, at times, in art, leading to him being called a colourist and a pop individualist. His work is in numerous public and private national and international collections.
