My early career was in teaching, writing, producing and directing for theatre, comedy and impro shows. Now I'm a professional creative person. Mostly high-end branding, strategy, writing, editing and digital content creation.
If you've been walking about sighing because you missed Bold and Unbridled earlier this year, then sigh no more. The bold, unbridled, colourful works of Brisbane artist Kristian Williams are on display from Wednesday 22nd of July at REDSEA Gallery.
His paintings that are available for purchase during the exhibition are adorned with gorgeous hues that appear inspired by street art and pop art. The colours he's chosen match wonderfully with modern interior design trends, meaning they're coveted by Brisbane's most respected tastemakers.
The subjects Kristian has tamed between thick black lines are often tribal and animal, depicted in a style reminiscent of the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat. The works also delve into the artist's personal life, his experiences of popular culture and modern life often with a sense of fun and humour too. Perhaps that's why every last piece of art he displayed at Bold and Unbridled sold out in just a few days – many within minutes of the exhibition's opening night.
Kristian is a Brisbane born lad who, in 2003 was the recipient of the Minister's Award for Excellence in Art. He'll be in attendance at the gallery on Saturday 25th of July from 1-3pm to meet and greet guests, so if you'd like to know more about the man, the stories and inspirations behind this highly coveted work, that's a great time to get along to REDSEA Gallery in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley. You can read a little more about the artist and preview some works at the REDSEA Gallery website, but I'd recommend viewing them firsthand to truly appreciate their beauty.
