Surftastic 8 by Go Suga
Small Wall Project
Outré Gallery Melbourne CBD
Exhibition Opening at 6pm, Friday, 22 March 2019
Go Suga was born in Hiroshima, Japan. He migrated to Australia and settled on the Gold Coast in Queensland in 1990. His talent for drawing has been a lifelong passion with a seamless blending of colour and culture.
Go's work draws upon and reflects his personal views on a wide range of influences including social, political and cultural issues. The vibrant hues, shape and movement amalgamate to create artwork with a mystical quality.
Surftastic 8 was inspired by the Pleiades of Greek mythology. The Pleiades were known as the seven sisters, and the daughters of Atlas. In Go’s vision, there are eight sisters – goddesses surfing in their sanctuary.
