Where Tropical Colour Meets Tribal Themes
Hey Geronimo by Kristian Williams
Wednesday the 4th of March saw the launch of a thrilling visual feast of brightly coloured abstract impressionist art by Kristian Williams. Titled Bold & Unbridled, the works of oil, acrylic, collage and oil pastels on canvas have their inspirations firmly in the tribal, animal, and erotic.
Titles of the works ranged from deeply personal to humorous and clever. Neon colours pop from their thick black outlines, birds sing, cats slink, breasts, desires and souls are bared in the ultimately uplifting works hanging on the walls at Brisbane's Mercure Hotel at North Quay.
Out of Africa by Kristian Williams
The launch party was well attended, with guests encouraged to wear black with a splash of colour. We were treated to canapés and drinks, including a blue champagne that perfectly matched with the cheerful colours of the artworks.
Brisbane born artist Kristian Williams was the recipient of the Minister's Award for Art Excellence in 2003. Of this exhibit, he says his inspirations came from street art, the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Norris Embry, and the highs and lows of our human emotions and experiences.
