Liam Snootle - A Painting Is A Song

Liam Snootle is a Melbourne-based visual artist with a background in Mathematics and graffiti. Liam creates works that are a response to sound, or an aural experience via visual stimulus, and is interested in the interplay between shape and colour and how they resonate emotionally with the viewer. He is heavily influenced by East Coast American alternative music of the 80s and 90s. The artist's practice centres on painting and urban installation.

His show A Painting Is A Song includes paintings that are responses to music that has been playing in his studio, or in his head. "I see parallels between a song and a painting and the legacy of each," said Liam. "I consider myself a frustrated songwriter but have satisfied that desire through art."
