‘Made in Melbourne’ – Auguste Clown Gallery

Made In Melbourne - EFlyer

Melbourne is a city that is constantly celebrating art, from the streets to the big galleries – at the core of their culture is a passionate love of art and all things creative and quirky. Some of them are born and raised there, many go for visit and never leave, others travel from far and wide to be able to call Melbourne home. This patchwork of experience weaves together a magnificent spectrum of diversity, giving the city a truly unique creative perspective.

On show at Auguste Clown Gallery this February, “Made In Melbourne” showcases outstanding work from the city’s best and brightest. Featuring artwork by both established and upcoming artists across various artistic mediums, the exhibition is a brilliant collection of paintings, drawings and handmade sculptures.

Opening on Friday 19th February from 6.00pm – 8.00pm at Auguste Clown Gallery; 52 Johnston Street, Fitzroy. The exhibition is on view until 6th March.

Introducing Andrew J. Steel

Damo: Can you tell us a little about yourself and your style?
AJS: My name is Andrew J. Steel, I’m a little over 10,000 days old and I’m a creative. I create some of the largest scale public artworks in New Zealand and I try to be a key influencer in the creative sector here. My style is ridiculous, anti-style and looks like your little brother did it. If you do anything long enough people start to care.
