Fight Drawing Harald H Bomb Olsen

I once again returned this month to the Linton and Kay Gallery on St Georges Terrace, but instead of viewing wallpaper painted nudes, I caught rising star, Andy Quilty’s latest instalment ‘Dilligaf’. The once surfboard labourer, hailing from Rockingham is now regarded as a Perth artist extraordinaire, with three solo exhibitions, a residence at 140 and awards to boot to his name.

‘Dilligaf’ is summarised as exploring the “notions surrounding hyper masculine suburban experience, physicality as a means of acceptance, and the misguided aspirations of faux heroics” (Linton and Kay Galleries).

The amount of work produced by the artist for this exhibition is staggering, and fortunately up for purchase for any one who has had their sights set on snapping up one of Quilty’s hectic, confronting pieces.

Well worth a look and an artist to keep in your sights, check out ‘Dilligaf’ before it closes on June 3rd.
