Inside the Helen Gory Galerie
In Prahran and need a quiet space to get away from the hustle and bustle of the shopping precinct? Do you want to take a moment's break from the continuous stream of pedestrian and vehicular traffic? Needing a quiet moment but not in the mood for the jam-to-bam of peak hour cafes? Well, there is a place and they are two art galleries located side-by-side near Prahran's trendy Greville Street.

The Rtist Gallery, and the Helen Gory Galerie

Currently showing at the Rtist Gallery are two artists with expertise in the area of Street Art.

Three of Faith47's works. Each etched into wood with ink. The third piece is of a horse etched with ink onto an old wardrobe door.

Faith47 is a self-taught street artist from Capetown in South Africa, and Dal East is a street artist hailing from the big city's bright lights of China's Beijing town.

Adrenalin: One of Dal East's many works

Dal studied sculpture at the Institute of Fine Arts, which can be seen in the 3-Dimensional portrayal of animals on walls and in art galleries where he exhibits his works.

Faith47 is captivated by the transient nature of her art which she prefers to paint onto old buildings or rusted gates which depicts life as non-permanent.

The Helen Gory Galerie is showing two artists completely different from the street art of Dal East and Faith47 where local artists Teo Treloar, and Jacqui Stockard have works showing.

Two of Jacqui Stockard's pieces

Stockard's images are unsettling but draw commonality with the viewer through the body-language of her subjects to perhaps depict a time in a person's life.

Teo Treloar has opted for the opposite to large-scale commercialisation of the 21st Century and instead retreated into smaller prints with figures emanating prisms from their heads.

The prints perhaps captivate the human mind in thought.

Both galleries are worth a visit. They are free, but costly if you choose to buy an original.

Faith47 and Dal East are showing at the Rtist Gallery until 13th May where you can visit Weds to Sun between 10am to 6pm.

Jacqui Stockard and Teo Treloar are showing at the Helen Gory Galerie until 29th May. You can visit anytime between Weds to Sat 11am to 5pm.
