PERFEKT WORLD is proud to invite the Sydney based artist NUMSKULL to work and live in Vienna for a month. He will participate at the Artist-in-Residence program of quartier21 in March and rounds his stay off with an exhibition at art space PERFEKT BOX.

BUST! explores the artists ‘fascination of the human obsession with beauty and the everyday struggle to keep up appearance. He finds the oddity in human relationships and interaction. From the simplest of personality quirks to the boldest of personality statements. Numskull uses bold, colourful and abstract like forms to create statuesque like figures that project a composite idea of us as people and how we might see each other.

We caught up with Cambridge boy, Mr. Penfold on his recent visit to Australia for a few quick questions about indigenous art, travel and those funny sausage noses…

What’s up with the weird noses?

Haha I get this question every time. The nose has changed a lot over the years, The original started off as a sausage stuck to the face, but the shape has been simplified down over the years. I like the challenge of getting the line done in one go, getting it perfect can be tricky, so its more about the pleasure of getting it right first time.

More jump off after the jump off!
