BLAK DOUGLAS: Studio and collection tour
Artist studio and collection visit
BLAK DOUGLAS (aka Adam Hill) is letting Contempo and you in to his inner creative world by revealing his studio and personal art collection. Come along on this walking tour of his home, studio and nearby office displaying many of his works. Hear all about what has inspired his collection, practice and journey to become one of Australia’s most prolific and loved artists – often with a political bent.
His award-winning pop-inspired painting style is mostly self taught with BLAK DOUGLAS having a graphics, illustration and photography background. His creative prowess also extends to his highly sought after Yidaki (didgeridoo) performance skills. Coming from a family of artisans, it is not surprising he has chosen to create thought provoking and action stirring work.
BLAK DOUGLAS’ work has been widely collected including by the National Gallery of Australia, National Museum of Australia, National Maritime Museum, NSW State Parliament, Taipei Museum and The Aboriginal Art Museum of Utrecht. So this intimate behind the scenes look at his creative genius is a real treat and one not to be missed!
