Melbourne-based artist Martin Harris creates candy-drenched children’s fantasylands in the most delicate watercolours of amazing and enchanting detail.
Of his art Martin says, “My pictures attempt to lift the veil as it were so that others may glimpse this ‘other world’’. My fascination and love of children’s picture books, comics, toys, 1960s television (Thunderbirds, Dr Who, and Pinky & Perky to name but a few) combined with my childhood memories and my love of animals are the basis and inspiration for my art."
Cat Rabbit & The Seven Seas
Cat Rabbit is a Melbourne-based textile artist and designer who works out of a studio in the Nicholas building and also does sewing in her home studio, with the company of her cat Porco. She makes plush sculptural works of her imagined characters and the worlds they might live in.
The Seven Seas is a Melbourne-based multidisciplinary artist working in illustration and sculpture. He works across many styles from figurative to abstract work, always with a focus on bold colours and large forms. The Seven Seas explores woodworking, casting and illustration techniques to represent his recurring cast of characters and forms reflecting memories, thoughts and travels.
