LONGCHAMP: JOHN ASLANIDIS

John Aslanidis has completed his major site-specific commission for Longchamp's Omotesando boutique in Tokyo's Harajuku precinct.

Taking one month to complete, the 84 sqm wall painting extends across three levels and is now open to the public.

This commission is in keeping with Aslanidis' elegant chromatic paintings which offer a vision firmly grounded in knowledge of physics, mathematics and music theory. Colour is liberated, and balanced by greys and blacks married to complementary opposites to create high contrast and compositionally resolved works.

AMBER WALLIS FEATURED IN ART ALMANAC

Amber Wallis's current exhibition 'Part Time Paintings' is featured in the current edition of Art Almanac:

'Amber Wallis is an enigmatic painter whose work holds a mirror to the present and past. In her latest show, with a title that hints at the highs and lows which are inevitable for a new parent, she confirms how motherhood spells a renegotiation of her time but has also encouraged the artist to tap into, or share a different part of herself and trove her signature landscapes for a nuanced and personal history.'

VIPOO SRIVILASA: Q&A

In conjunction with National Clay Week, Artaxis presents 12 hours of live-streaming conversations with 24 Artaxis members from 16 countries.

Vipoo Srivilasa is scheduled to talk between 12:00pm - 1:00pm, 11 October 2017. Questions may be submitted here

Vipoo’s work explores similarities between the cultures of his native home, Thailand and his adoptive home, Australia. His work is a playful blend of historical, figurative and decorative art practices whilst engaging with contemporary culture.

Using blue and white colour, he creates complex narratives through highly decorated images on ceramic forms. His work requires an intimacy in which the key elements of the drama are often found in unusual places within the forms themselves.

Collaboration has been an important part of Vipoo's creative practice. He has been using clay to engage communities into his creating process in the past 10 years. In addition to exhibiting his work, Vipoo actively initiates and organises cultural exchange projects between national and internationally artists.

Get your questions ready and join Vipoo and others for a Q&A. To watch click here.
