Artspace showcases original art by people with disability
Activ's flagship art exhibition, Activ Artspace, is returning to Wembley for its third successive year this March.
Launched in 2014, Activ Artspace is a free public exhibition showcasing original art pieces created by people living with disability. The 2016 exhibition will feature original photographs alongside pieces across watercolour, oil, and acrylic.
Excitingly for collectors, the 2016 exhibition will also feature a flagship auction piece created by talented West Australian artist and Activ customer Paul Mitchell OAM.
Winner of the 2015 Activ Artspace Jarmen McKenna Representational Award, Paul is a respected and celebrated artist in his own right. A former Paralympian, Paul was awarded an Order of Australia for his gold medal win in the men's 1500m track event at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Following his retirement from professional athletics, Paul dedicated his time to sketching and drawing famous personalities. Paul was touched by the passing of iconic Australian Steve Irwin, which inspired him to paint his first portrait. The piece was entered into a number of exhibitions and kick-started Paul's artistic career. With no formal training, Paul began painting more and more personalities, including Western Warriors Captain Adam Voges, which is now displayed in their Perth clubrooms.
