Violetta Strabic’s Beautiful Things Exhibition is her love to illuminate the attractiveness and playfulness of all things beautiful. Wollongong based artist takes inspiration for her works
When playing with art she loves to accentuate subject matter in its interpretation. Creating the synergies of gorgeously flowing still lifes work wirth semi-hidden figurative landscapes like a ‘Where’s Wally?’ poster. Her intention is to draw out the mind’s eye in an appreciative way.

Sydney is fast becoming the new city of laneways; snaking streets that were once avoided and ignored, now, celebrated as the city’s new and evolving canvasses. Art is being taken to the people, inviting them to twist and turn down corners and alleys that have been transformed into the galleries for artists of now. This October long weekend, two young artists, at the forefront of this movement are showcasing not only their works, but holding a workshop where they will inspire others to do the same. Young Blood Exhibition opens Friday 4th October 2013. 6pm ‘til 8:30pm. Street Art Workshop Sunday 6th October 2013.
Often painting on a large scale his work revolves around a more realistic style with thought provoking concepts. The Dirt’s murals can be seen throughout Sydney and was recently involved in the City of Sydney’s 75 meter long mural along Foley Street in Darlinghurst.”
His work is a psychotic mix of pop cultural references/hallucinations, thin black lines, vibrant colour, and adrenalin fuelled late nights. If you haven’t seen his work then you must be living under a rock.
Although both artists have been classically trained they approach their genre with varied and distinctive style.

Dinah Johanson is a Sydney based artist specialising in printmaking.
Many of her prints investigate ideas of exploration, memory and alienation, in places such as the Moon or the desert. These works examine the physical and psychological states of endurance in landscapes that have been scoured, bombarded or erased. Often there is one lonely figure or animal.
MOON is her latest collection of exquisite images exploring the Moon. A world of wonder. A world away.
Join us at KaleidoscopeGallery HQ for a talk by Sydney-based Saudi artist, Saffaa.
As part of Homeland Festival, this talk is an exciting opportunity to find out about some of the issues at the heart of artwork being made by our exhibiting artists.
Saffaa is an MFA candidate at Sydney College of the Arts. Her art practice largely revolves around female empowerment and is aimed at dispelling myths about Saudi women and Saudi Arabia. In her talk, Saffaa discusses her ever evolving love-hate relationship with art and how her continued cultural activism has shaped and continues to shape her art practice. For more information on the artist please visit:www.saffaa.wordpress.com
